Support Valley Hospital Charity with your BetterPoints

20 July 2021

Donate your BetterPoints to great local causes

Users can donate their BetterPoints earned from the Get Active in Ebbsfleet challenge in support of local charities. One such charity listed on the BetterPoints app is Valley Hospital Charitythe official NHS Charity supporting Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust.

Based at Darent Valley Hospital in Dartford, the Charity exists to enhance patient care, helping to afford new ground-breaking technologies to offer world class treatments to the local community, as well as supporting medical research and making the hospital environment more comfortable for patients and their visiting loved ones.

In this last year they have launched a Staff Wellbeing Fund to support local NHS staff during Covid-19 with new and improved staff room areas, and lots of wellbeing activities to help build resilience.

Having been unable to rely on events income over the last year due to Covid restrictions, they have been overwhelmed by the support from the local community, most recently as part of the NHS Big Tea.

As real life events pick up they have a number of exciting and active events for you to get involved with including the Royal Parks Half Marathon, Virtual London Marathon and Lands End to John O’Groats cycle. To find out more about their events tap or click here.
