The Centre for Sustainable Healthcare (CHS) secured funding at last Monday's Pitch Pledge Party Event for the promotion of retrofitting heat exchangers to kidney dialysis machines throughout the UK.

Pitch Pledge Party is a new initiative by 10:10, The Funding Network and The Guardian to match carbon cutting projects with funders. CSH's project was one of three to secure donations via this new initiative at the Monday event.

The funding will support a project coordinator to promote the retrofitting of heat exchangers to kidney dialysis machines throughout the UK. The device has been tried-and-tested by Fraser Campbell and Steve Milne at the Kent Kidney Care Centre at East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust achieving a 20% cut in the machine's carbon emissions.

We would like to say a big thank you to the donors for sponsoring our project. Also a big thank you to 10:10, The Funding Network and The Guardian who have put us through to the final three and to all others who have supported us.
