Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals Charity (DBTH Charity) has won the ‘Campaign of the Year’ award at the 2023 Doncaster Business Awards for its hugely influential The Serenity Appeal baby loss campaign.

The Appeal campaign significantly exceeded its £150,000 target, directly funding two important initiatives: a dedicated bereavement room at Doncaster Royal Infirmary and a mobile ultrasound scanner at Bassetlaw Hospital. These resources provide additional comfort and support to families facing pregnancy complications and bereavement.

Sarah Dunning, Fundraising Manager at DBTH Charities, expressed her boundless gratitude, saying, “This recognition is amazing, especially for our first major capital fundraising campaign. The outpouring of support from the community, businesses and individuals made our dream come true.

The success of the fundraising campaign was a collective effort, with DBTH’s estates and publicity team, the suite’s architect and bereavement midwife Rhian Morris playing a key role: she emphasized the significance of the award: “The award is testament to the huge demand for this appeal, and recognition of all the individuals who have made a difference to the families of Doncaster”.

The judges were particularly impressed by the ‘all-encompassing’ nature of the appeal and its remarkable success despite limited resources and a small team.

The DBTH charity was nominated in 17 different categories at the 25th Doncaster Business Awards, organized by the local Chamber of Commerce. Chamber Chief Executive Dan Fell expressed his admiration for all the entrants, saying, “These businesses embody the spirit of tenacity: “These businesses embody the spirit of tenacity in Doncaster. With all this incredible talent driving our city, the future really is bright.”
