What is the Daisy Appeal?
The Daisy Appeal is a local charity established to help improve treatment and research opportunities in a variety of common diseases, most notably cancer, heart disease and neurological illness.
Having successfully raised £8 million to enable the construction of a Medical Research Centre at Castle Hill Hospital in 2008, the Daisy Appeal has now moved onto Phase 2 of the Appeal - to create a permanent patient scanning and research centre which will cost £6.8 million
Construction of the new centre is on course for completion in December 2013, in time for the arrival of the PET-CT Scanning equipment. A three month commissioning period will follow, with an expected opening date of Spring 2014.

Research and treatment facilities for people in the Hull & East Yorkshire region are now greatly improved and with the addition of this equipment, we will be the first in Yorkshire to provide advanced imaging facilities directly linked to an ongoing scientific research programme.
- The appeal is local, efficient and dedicated to helping.
- The chances are we are already helping someone you know!
There are many easy ways to help the Appeal, including donating, fundraising or volunteering. It can be as easy as using us to recycle your phone, or as challenging as running a marathon... You decide!
