Our healthcare workers push themselves the extra mile – it’s the reason we exist. We want to help nurses in need and we need you!
They might be our heroes but we also know that healthcare workers are only human and sometimes they need support.
That’s why we, the Health Service Discounts team, are going the extra mile uphill to conquer Snowden – the highest mountain in Wales – for Cavell Nurses’ Trust.
For 4 years we have been supporting Cavell Nurses’ Trust – a fantastic national charity that helps nurses, midwives, and healthcare assistants. They exist for those who find themselves in need of financial help and support.
As well as practical advice the charity offers one-off financial grants for things like living expenses, white goods, respite care and aids for daily living for those with disabilities.
They also offer regular assistance when illness or low income causes exceptional hardship.
Over this period our lottery, that has been specifically set up to support Health Service Staff, has given away over £134,000 in prizes and raised over £112,000 for Cavell Nurses’ Trust.

We want to support Cavell Nurses Trust in every way possible. As a team we are taking part in their 10K For Nurses challenge.
Keep an eye out on our blog for an update after 13th of October. With your help our challenge to climb Snowdon at an elevation of 1,085 metres will be complete.
We’d love it if you and your colleagues would support this great cause by donating on our Just Giving page: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/we-are-discounts
A small amount really does help those Healthcare workers who are in need:
£10 Pays travel costs for a nurse suffering from cancer to attend a hospital appointment
£25 Helps a healthcare assistant on a low income buy school uniform for their child
£50 Helps pay heating costs for a retired midwife who’s recovering from illness
£500 Helps pay emergency rent for a nurse fleeing domestic abuse
