Maybe you’ve had new hip, a new knee or you are suffering from arthritis or rheumatism? You may have benefited personally from treatment of an orthopaedic condition or know of someone who has?

The Orthopaedic Institute welcome donations to support the advancement of care of arthritis and rheumatism, conditions of childhood including cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophies, joint replacement and cellular techniques for repair and healing.

As a registered Charity our mission at the Orthopaedic Institute is to support research and education for patient benefit in the specialist research departments at the RJAH Hospital, the largest Orthopaedic Hospital and Centre of Excellence in the UK.

The funding provided has only been possible because of donations received from patients and relatives or Charitable Trusts and Foundations. Your donations and grants, no matter how large or small, help fund our vital research for which we are incredibly grateful.

Please help us to help our research teams – together we have a great record of success.

 Thank you for your support

Gift Aid

If you are a UK taxpayer, we can increase the value of your donation by 25% by claiming a rebate from the Inland Revenue.

For example, on a £1,000 donation, the Orthopaedic Institute is able to reclaim £250 in tax, raising the value of your donation to £1,250 at no extra cost to you or our charity!

If you are donating via Paypal or Just Giving please tick the relevant Gift Aid box. 

Or if you are sending a cheque you can simply add these words to your letter “I would like the Orthopaedic Institute Ltd to treat this donation and all other donations I make as Gift Aid Donations”

Celebratory giving

Celebratory Giving allows you, your friends and family to commemorate a significant event, perhaps a birthday, anniversary or christening. Instead of buying gifts, you ask your guests to make donations to the Orthopaedic Institute on your behalf. You could help you set up a fund raising page with Just Giving and we will write to you following the event to confirm how much your guests have kindly donated and how their money will be used.


Thinking of booking a holiday or just doing the weekly shop, easyfundraising will support the Orthopaedic Institute Charity every time you shop at no extra cost to you. Register just once and over 4,000 shops and sites will donate to us for FREE every time you use #easyfundraising to shop with them.
These donations will help SO MUCH, so please sign up to support us – it’s completely FREE!

Payroll Giving

Ever thought about Payroll Giving ?  

Can you spare £1.00 per week!

Many people donating a small amount, less than the cost of a cup of coffee per week, can make a big difference!

Payroll Giving allows you to donate directly from your pay to any UK registered charity or good cause.

Your regular donations can support research and education here at RJAH and can be tailored to a particular specialism.  For example, nursing studies, arthritis or spinal research.

Donations are taken from your pay after your National Insurance contributions are removed but before Income Tax is calculated. For instance, if you are a 20% taxpayer, 80% of your donation amount will be taken from your salary and 20% will be taken from the tax which would have gone to HMRC.

For example:

You pledge 20% tax payer you pay 40% tax payer you pay Charity receives
£5.00 £4.00 £3.00 £5.00
£10.00 £8.00 £6.00 £10.00
£50.00 £40.00 £30.00 £50.00

The scheme is run by the Charities Trust of which the RJAH Hospital and Keele University are both members, however any organisation can join.

To sign up and start giving just click the button below, complete, sign and send the form to your payroll department.  It must be signed manually.  All the contact details and addresses for payroll are on the bottom of the form for your convenience.

You can also rest assured that you have the flexibility to change your mind or your donation at any time.

I do hope you will consider signing up to the scheme and encourage others to think about it too.  Together we can make a big difference and make every pay day count.
