Poems in the Waiting Room

Charity description

Poems in the Waiting Room logo
Poems in the Waiting Room (PitWR) publish short collections of poems on cards for patients to read while waiting to see their doctor, and to take away with them.

We rely on donations - we make no charge to patients and receive no mney from the NHS.

Our aim is to help make the doctors waiting room a more healing place. We want to say 'thank you' to health service staff for their care, and to promote poetry and poets.

We run a Friends of PitWR scheme for those who can support us regularly. Friends receive a book of poetry from our cards, plus a newsletter and a copy of each card four times per year.

If you are donating to become a Friend of PitWR, or to continue to support us as a Friend, please forward the email you receive from MyDonate when you have donated to , along with your postal address, so that we can send you your poetry book and newsletter.

Charity No: 1099033
