How to Help

Charity Hospital Costs

There are many ways that you can help the Canterbury Charity Hospital to continue to provide its free services to the people of Canterbury and the West Coast by making a donation, becoming a volunteer, attending our events or leaving a gift in your will.

For every $ donated,
82 cents goes directly to patient care

It costs over $1 million a year to run the Canterbury Charity Hospital and we rely almost entirely on donations from the public. 

We are very grateful for every donation as, no matter how big or small, you help us continue to help people in the Canterbury region who would otherwise not receive their treatment.
