We are moving into the new year by throwing our support behind University Hospitals Dorset NHS Charity - and naming it as our official good cause for 2024 and 2025. 

We will spend the next two years raising funds and awareness to help the charity enhance the treatment and care of patients accessing NHS services at Royal Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch hospitals. 

“University Hospitals Dorset NHS Charity is a crucial local resource, helping to pay for additional equipment, research and innovations - as well as finishing touches and ‘extras’ that complement the existing high quality care for patients across the three towns,” said Morebus general manager, Richard Wade.

“It provides financial support to areas of the hospitals’ services that lie beyond the scope of NHS funding - and this is of enormous benefit to thousands of people living across our area.  

“Our Charity of the Year is voted for by the Morebus team. Many of my colleagues have benefited directly from the support University Hospitals Dorset NHS Charity provides, so we are delighted to be backing this very worthy cause, and raising as much money as possible over the coming year.” 

We have a busy calendar of fundraising planned, and will also promote the charity on-board and on the rear of a bus. 

“Hopefully, the messages will be seen by thousands traveling throughout the area - and this will help increase awareness for this very worthy cause,” added Richard.  

“Our new partnership with Morebus is so exciting because there are so many opportunities to make a real difference together for everybody across Dorset and the surrounding areas. Our hospitals and local bus service strive to achieve the same goal – to provide the best possible service for our community. On behalf of the charity, we are looking forward to funding further items that are above and beyond NHS funds and doing even more for our patients with the support of Morebus.” said Corporate Fundraiser for University Hospitals Dorset NHS Charity, Hayley Harris.
