Introducing Gateshead Health Charity

On 15 January, we launched our new charity look and name – Gateshead Health Charity. This change helps us to demonstrate our commitment to supporting the Gateshead Health NHS Foundation Trust.

Hear from Mike Robson, Chair of the Charity Subcommittee about why we needed to make a change.

The launch event showcased the first look of our new branding, displayed on banners and merchandise alongside a balloon arch created in the brand colours, supplied by Balloon Design. We also presented a video explaining the rebrand and featuring our new logo and strapline.

Kris Mackenzie, Executive Lead for Gateshead Health Charity, and Group Director of Finance and IT for Gateshead Health NHS Foundation Trust explained what the charity is all about and how we can improve the healthcare setting for our patients.

Attendees enjoyed Gateshead Health Charity cupcakes and received a goodie bag containing items such as a charity pen, charity notepad, charity lanyard and most importantly, a charity chocolate bar.

We are thankful for everyone who has supported us in the past with donations, fundraisers and legacies and we are excited for what the future holds for us as Gateshead Health Charity. With your support, we can continue to make life more comfortable for our patients, visitors, and staff, ensuring the best possible healthcare experience for all.
