We are hugely grateful to staff of London Gatwick Airport who have voted for SASH Charity as the new charity partner for the airport. Together we hope to make a real difference for the people who rely on our hospitals.
As the charity for East Surrey Hospital, as well as services at Crawley, Horsham and elsewhere in Surrey and Sussex, we are Gatwick Airport’s local hospital charity, serving staff, passengers and many colleagues, family and friends who live locally, 24 hours a day.
Our hospitals provide NHS care from cradle to grave. Our charity helps us to go even further for patients and their families.
Our partnership will mean Gatwick Airport colleagues will be a key part of growing the hospital charity, creating a lasting legacy for everyone in the community so that we can do much more than this for local families, long into the future.
How Gatwick staff can help
It’s an unusual time for the airport family, with very few flights and passengers. However, there are lots of ways you can still help.
If you’re employed by Gatwick Airport Ltd, GAL Ltd will match fund whatever you raise up to £250.
- Run Reigate: We are putting together our largest ever team of runners for Run Reigate’s half marathon, 10k, 5k and childrens races, and we would love to have as many Gatwick friends running for the hospitals as possible. You can register online here.
- Do your own thing: We love seeing how imaginative people are. Whatever you do, remember to stay safe, and to set up your donations page at https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/gatwicknhs
We are developing our partnership plans – including inspiring as many Gatwick colleagues as possible to support the local hospitals, and to share with you the impact which your support has had.
If you work at the airport and would like to know more about how to get involved, please drop us a line at [email protected]
