Endowments and Gifts funds are used on items to ensure patient comfort and extra equipment to enhance safe and quality care.
She added, “There are also numerous donations in memory of family members which have gone directly to facilities including day centres for adults with learning disabilities; services for older people and children and young people’s services.”
