Over fifty local businesses are helping to raise funds for the new Urgent and Emergency Care Centre at Scarborough Hospital which is due to open in early 2024.

Businesses in Scarborough, York and surrounding areas have donated prizes to support an online charity auction to raise funds for the Urgent and Emergency Care Appeal, organised by York & Scarborough Hospitals Charity.

Prizes include holidays, spa days, gifts, dining experiences, golf, and family days out. Anyone can join in to bid for prizes when the auction opens at 9am on Monday 14 November.

Rachel Kennedy, Revenue and Reservations Manager at the Feversham Arms Hotel and Verbena Spa in Helmsley, said: “We are delighted to support the auction by donating a spa day for two at the Verbena Spa. The classic spa experience includes a 90-minute fully loaded skin-luxe facial and body duo. It is the perfect treat to bid on for yourself and a loved one, and we are really pleased to be supporting such a wonderful cause.”

Emma Sargent, Community Fundraiser for York & Scarborough Hospitals Charity, said: “We are so grateful for the incredibly generous support shown by local businesses. The money raised will help to fund the extras in the new centre including creating relatives’ rooms within critical care to enable family to stay close by, fitting out specialist rooms including a mental health crisis room, and funding gardens to support patient and staff wellbeing.

“There is a fantastic range of prizes, so whether you would like to treat yourself or get some Christmas shopping done, please do take a look at the auction website and get bidding!”

The auction will run online from 9am on Monday 14 November until 8pm on Sunday 27 November. Go to www.york.nhs.uk/onlineauction to browse lots and start bidding.
