3 individuals stood, the middle person is posing with a cheque in hand. The Hospital Saturday Fund donated grants to twenty-five Scottish charities at a special reception hosted at Glasgow City Chambers on 29 February 2024. In total, £110,000 was donated to the charities at the event, which was hosted by The Lord Provost of Glasgow, Councilor Jacqueline McLaren.

Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland, received a grant to fund a specialist nurse in the West of Scotland and other charities such as Clan Cancer Support received grants which will be used to fund support such as complementary therapy sessions. 

Speaking at the reception The Lord Provost of Glasgow, Jacqueline McLaren, celebrated the extraordinary work of all the charities receiving donations from The Hospital Saturday Fund.

Paul Jackson, Group Chief Executive of The Hospital Saturday Fund said: “We are delighted to continue the tradition of supporting many wide-ranging charities in Scotland, many of which are less well-known. The Hospital Saturday Fund is honoured to support the efforts of such deserving charities and help in some way towards the exceptional, tireless work that they do in making such a huge and positive difference to people’s lives.”

Deborah Roe, SBH Scotland's Director of Fundraising was at the reception and gave the Vote of Thanks. On receiving the grant on behalf of the charity she said, "We remain ever grateful to The Hospital Saturday Fund for their continued support of our work. By funding our Specialist Nurse they enable us to provide dedicated health and wellness clinics for all those affected by spina bifida and hydrocephalus across Scotland. The clinics offer holistic support across mental and physical wellbeing, promoting self-management of conditions and are in place to minimise the number of members waiting until crisis point before they seek medical help."

In 2024 The Hospital Saturday Fund will give £2.25 million in donations and grants to medical charities for care and research, hospices and hospitals across the UK, Ireland and Malta. Assistance will also be given to individuals whose illness or disability has caused financial difficulties.
