Our Charity

PTHB Charity is the registered charity (charity no. 1057902) for the whole of the Powys Teaching Health Board and we look after all donations that are made to PTHB staff, services, and hospitals.

We distribute those donations through our different grant schemes (such as the COVID Response Fund) which are open to applications from PTHB staff members, charities and other local organisations within Powys. All of our projects aim to enhance or improve the health and wellbeing of NHS staff, patients and the community above and beyond what can be provided through core funding. 

Making a Donation

Thank you for thinking about making a donation. Donations can make a real difference to the surroundings in which patients are cared for or to the service they receive. They can be used in all sorts of ways.  Here are some examples of how previous donations have been used:

  • To improve patient surroundings or facilities for visitors by providing pictures, furniture etc.
  • To improve gardens and outside spaces for the benefit of patients and staff.
  • To provide additional toys and equipment for children attending treatment areas.
  • To provide art and therapeutic items for use in day hospital sessions.

Donations are kept within Powys and if a donor makes a wish for their donation to be used for a specific purpose, we ensure this happens.


Can I make a donation for a specific purpose?

You can ask for your donation to be used for a specific purpose, for example to buy a piece of equipment or to go to a designated service or staff group.  Please make this clear when you make your donation and we will do its very best to meet your wishes.  If we cannot fulfil your request for any reason, we will contact you to discuss this.  You can then either make a different request or, if you prefer, we will return your donation.

If you would like your donation to be used wherever it is most needed to improve facilities or services for patients and staff, please do not indicate a fund with your donation.  Your donation will then be put into the General Purposes Fund for Powys as a whole.


How can I make a donation?

There are 3 ways that you can make a donation:

  • You can now donate through our dedicated JustGiving page. It is a simple and secure way to donate.
  • In person by calling in to the Administration Department of your local hospital.  If you do this, you can give cash or a cheque and a member of staff will provide an official receipt.
  • By posting a cheque to Powys Teaching Health Board Charitable Fund, Finance Department, Bronllys Hospital, Bronllys, Brecon, Powys, LD3 0LY

Please also consider making a gift aid declaration to increase the value of your donation by up to 25%. More information on gift aid here.
