Three Nottingham businessmen, the Digva brothers, Steve, Jack and Gary, have donated £10,000 to Nottingham’s Children’s Hospital, working in partnership with The Star Trust.
 
The Star Trust is an East Midlands-based charity, run by local business owners and entrepreneurs, which supports good causes across the region.  
 
The Digva brothers have a range of business interests in the city, including In Phase International, which counts Road Angel, Retroscents and Space Data Centres amongst its businesses and property development firm Chartwell Properties.
 
The Nottingham’s Children Hospital’s ‘Big Thank You’ event was attended by a range of partners, including Steve Digva and Stephanie Smith, Clinical Director of Nottingham Children’s Hospital.
 
Steve Digva said; “This is a cause very close to our hearts as a family so we are delighted to have donated this amount of money for the Nottingham Children’s Hospital. The work they do and the families they support is incredible and with our donation we are proud to be able to play a small part in supporting them.”
Stephanie Smith said; “We know that having a child in hospital is one of the most stressful experiences a family can ever have to face. That’s why, at the end of 2016, we launched our BIG Appeal for Nottingham Children’s Hospital, aiming to raise £4 million by 2021 to help to transform care for babies and children in Nottingham.
 
“We could not do this without passionate supporters like the Digva family and The Star Trust. We are so grateful for everything that you have done for Nottingham Children’s Hospital and Neonatal Units.”
