ROYAL FREE NHS FUND RAISE
Proceeds from Kitty Coburn’s cover of Duran Duran’s ‘Ordinary World’ will help the Royal Free Charity to continue to support the full array of these nationally and, in some cases, internationally significant health innovations while providing the staff of the NHS with funding for the psychological and emotional support they need to deal with the impact of the pandemic.
Proceeds from the single will be donated to the Royal Free Charity which works directly with its three hospitals to develop and support high-impact projects. The charity - which is committed to making patient care in the Royal Free, Barnet and Chase Farm hospitals safer, more efficient, more effective and closer to home - also funds world-class and life-changing research aimed at finding cures and new treatments for diseases like diabetes, amyloidosis, pancreatic cancer and haemophilia. The Royal Free London specialises in an array of disease areas such as liver, renal, neuroendocrine tumours, high consequence infectious diseases and connective tissue disease which bring patients from all over the UK and beyond.
Viewers across the UK have been tuning into the award-winning “Hospital” series on BBC2 where the work of the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust has been showcased as the NHS recovered from the first wave of the pandemic while preparing for the second.
Jon Spiers, the chief executive of the Royal Free Charity, says: “I want to say a huge thank you to Kitty Coburn and the Creative Collective for this heartfelt and beautiful single in support of the Royal Free Charity. The amazing staff of the NHS have been truly heroic throughout the most challenging of circumstances and we’ve been with them every step of the way. It’s only thanks to the generosity and creativity of people like Kitty that we’re able to keep supporting NHS workers and patients. One day soon we will return to a more ordinary world and look back with pride at how we’ve all come together to help our NHS and each other make it through.”
