We are ECHO Hospital and Community Healthcare Charity, the official charity of East Cheshire NHS Trust.


As the coronavirus has become more widespread, the people of Macclesfield have had the wellbeing of staff at East Cheshire NHS Trust (Macclesfield District General, Congleton War Memorial Hospital and Knutsford and District Hospital, as well as community settings) at the forefront of their minds during this difficult time.

The trust has received donations of food, drink and other supplies, as well as offers of time from volunteers. This is all greatly appreciated by everyone at the trust.  As people have wanted to donate money as well, we have set up two Just Giving pages, one to support staff and one to support patients.



The Trust have created two donation pages to support patients and staff during the pandemic.

Donations for our patients

With tightly restricted visiting it is not possible for patients to see their relatives or friends so the donations will be used to do anything we can to support them during their time in hospital or during their recovery.


Supporting our staff

Donations will go towards the welfare and wellbeing of trust staff and volunteers and recognise those who are working night and day on the front line and in support areas, looking after the local population.
