Forever Friends Appeal Events

If you would like to support the Arts programme you can make a donation, take part in an event (below) or find out many more ways to get involved. Whichever way you chose, you will be helping us maintain and continue this valuable service for the benefit of patients, staff and visitors.

Calling all nurseries, schools and colleges!                           Pounds for Patients: Throughout 2017/18

Take part in our new event – exclusively for children and young adults! The idea is simple: get your nursery, school or college to pick a day, choose a fun activity and ask everyone to donate £1 to help patients and their families at Bath’s Royal United Hospital.

From holding a non-school uniform day, putting on a bake sale at break time, to taking your teddy along for the day, there are countless ways that you can help! If you would like to support Art at the Heart of the RUH, please specify this when entering and simply sign up to receive a FREE fundraising pack at

Thank you for your support!

Walk a marathon and help patients at Bath’s RUH  
Walk of Life 2018: Saturday 12th May 2018

Take part in The Forever Friends Appeal’s annual “Walk of Life” in May 2018 and help make a real difference to thousands of local people, when they need it most. You can choose to walk the full marathon distance (26.2 miles) from Bishops Cannings (near Devizes) to Bath, or take part in our afternoon walk (10 miles) from Bradford on Avon to Bath.  By taking part in the Walk of Life, you can choose to support any ward or department in the hospital that is close to your heart, or one of the Appeals major campaigns (RUH Cancer Care, RNHRD & Therapies Centre etc.).

General entry places are now available and can be purchased for just £20, with a pledge to raise a further minimum sponsorship of £100. In return, you’ll receive a free Walk of Life t-shirt, refreshments along the route, plus lots of support and encouragement throughout training and fundraising.

Trek the Grand Canyon & change lives                                           8th – 15th September 2018 @ South-West USA

The Forever Friends Appeal are looking for adventurers to join their next charity trekking challenge – Trek the Canyons! You’ll hike beneath the rim of the Grand Canyon, explore between the bright orange spires in Bryce Canyon and navigate the trails in Zion Canyon… and when your challenge has been accomplished, you’ll celebrate in the bright lights of Las Vegas.
With a bit of determination, every step you take can transform care for RUH patients and their families.
