MP backs the Dudley News Big Push wheelchair appeal

The demand for wheelchairs is on the rise as they are used by hundreds of patients every day – from those with mobility problems to people being transferred to and from wards for x-rays and scans.

Now, Russells Hall Hospital needs your support to raise £30,000 to purchase 50 brand new wheelchairs.

When the NHS is facing big cutbacks and longer waiting lists, it’s great to see the Dudley News and local people stepping in to help our local hospital.

I promised at the election that when times are tough for so many local families I would use the MPs' pay rise to help good causes so I’m really pleased to support this appeal and I know big-hearted local people will help out too.

You can sponsor a wheelchair too for £600 or make a personal donation to a particular ward or department. Every donation will make a difference to patients experience.
