For those of you who have been touched by the story behind MRI Maakers and the Harriet’s Hat pattern, you can find out what other local people are doing to help raise funds on the Shetland MRI Scanner Appeal site.

We’ve been asked how to support/donate to the scanner appeal directly, the following is a list of methods taken from their site.

PayPal allows you to securely donate a one-off or regular
contribution to the campaign. UK tax payers can opt to add
Gift aid which means HMRC give an extra 25%, so choosing
this option increases your donation at no cost to you. 

If you prefer to donate by cheque, please make it out to
NHS Shetland Endowment Fund” and post/deliver it to:
Endowment Fund Supervisor,
NHS Shetland Endowment Fund,
Finance Department,
Gilbert Bain Hospital,
South Road,
ZE1 0TB.

Give up a bad habit or be really creative and do something
different that people will sponsor you for. Follow the “MY
FUNDRAISING” link below and create your own GoFundMe
page. Guidance on how to create your page is in the MRI
Scanner Fundraising Pack. Other templates available for you
to use are our: Event PosterInvitationTicketDonations

There are collection points in the Gilbert Bain Hospital as
well as NHS Shetland Health Centres and various local
shops. Our fundraising events will also have collection
points. If you would like to arrange another method, please
