Please help us by donating directly to the fund. A company could donate anything from a few pounds to £200 to show their support of Somerset NHS Foundation staff and all money raised will go directly to NHS staff physical activity and wellbeing projects. These initiatives will be managed by the Foundation Trusts Physical Activity Working Group which is run by and for staff from across the Trust.
