About Health Stars

Health Stars are the charity of Humber Teaching NHS Foundation Trust. Together we create better healthcare and brighter futures for people across East Yorkshire, Hull, and North Yorkshire.

Your donations help enhance the health care and experiences of thousands of people using mental health, neurodiversity, learning disability, children’s and young people and local NHS services every day.

We fund equipment that NHS budgets do not cover, make our buildings more attractive and therapeutic and provide the little extras that make a visit or stay in our services that little bit brighter.

We help ease the burden on families offering comfort through treatment and reducing boredom.

Your support also helps us say an extra special thank you to our incredible team, making them feel appreciated, supported and healthy at work.

How do I pay in a donation?

You can pay in donations here or to pay in your collections. If you could tell us this is money raised in memory of someone special that will help us communicate with you appropriately.

Can I run my own fundraising event in someone’s memory?

Our year-round events programme has a range of ways to get involved and raise money to make a difference to our services and their patients.

From running and walking to bake sales and book clubs you will find something that is right for you.

However if you prefer to organise your own event you can download our fundraising resources and donate your proceeds online. Find event inspiration and support on our fundraising pages.

Are there any other ways I can remember my loved one?

We can work with you to create unique and lasting ways to remember your loved one. This could be by creating a special fund in their name, raising funds for a special appeal or running an event that they would have loved. Please get in touch with our Fundraising and Events team to talk about your ideas.
