Bullseye! Boost for patients on hospital units

27th November 2018

Big hearted ladies darts players have donated £600 to a hospital which cares for people over 65 who have mental health needs.

Members of the Rawmarsh and Parkgate Ladies Darts Teams, who play in a number of pubs in the area, handed over the money to staff at The Woodlands, which is based behind Rotherham Hospital, off Moorgate.

The darts team play in a charity league which fundraises for various charities – and they chose to hand money over to The Brambles and Glade Wards at The Woodlands.  Over the last 12 months the ladies have raised a staggering £12,000 which has been donated to 21 local charities or organisations, The Woodlands being one of them. The money has been raised by holding raffles and events.

Angela Paterson, one of the managers at The Woodlands, said: “All of the staff want to thank these wonderful ladies for this donation. Every penny of it will be spent on our patients. It’s fantastic that they wanted to make this donation to us. We really appreciate it.”

The Woodlands is run by Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust (RDaSH).
