What’s your reason?

From pride in their local hospital, to honouring the memory of a loved one, our passionate Friarage MRI scanner appeal supporters all have their reasons for raising funds.

Bill and his reason

Now, for the first time, we’re capturing people’s unique incentives for supporting the campaign as part of our push to raise the final £500,000 needed to bring a brand new MRI Scanner to the Friarage Hospital, Northallerton.

The #MyReasonIs campaign encourages people to make a donation and then share their reason for supporting the appeal and a photograph using the #MyReasonIs hashtag on Twitter or the Friarage Hospital Facebook page.

Pictures are being featured on our special pledge wall at which will grow over the next few weeks, building up a fantastic picture of community support!
