The Trust acknowledges this is deeply disappointing and is grateful to all the donors and supporters who contributed to this initiative. The Hospital would like to reallocate the donated funds to support another charitable Hospital initiative enabling Robotic surgery in Luton. However, if donors would like their funds to be returned they can contact the Charity team to arrange this.
