ACT – Making a difference for patients

Make a donation or fundraise for us with Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust.

The Trust is very lucky to have the support of its own charity – Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust (ACT) – which helps make a difference for patients by raising extra funds to enhance services, facilities and research at Addenbrooke’s and the Rosie. Making use of the funds raised by ACT allows the hospitals to achieve some things sooner than it would otherwise have done and to invest in projects to a greater degree than NHS funds alone might have allowed. The charity supports the development of new facilities such as the Cambridge Breast Cancer Research Unit and the purchase of state-of-the-art equipment like the Da Vinci Robot for the treatment of prostate cancer, as well as day to day extras for departments across the hospitals where the need is greatest or most urgent.
