The Alborada Trust has been a supporter of the hospital since 2015 when it funded the purchase of a 3-D printer, the first of its kind in Cambridge. The success and use of this was such that a grant for a second printer was awarded in 2019 at a total cost of just under half a million pounds.
Throughout the Covid pandemic the Trust supported Addenbrooke’s in particular the frontline staff with the provision of well being rooms and care packages.
The advance of the use of technology in hospitals proceeds apace, as a result of which the Alborada Trust contributed £750,000 towards the cost of a robot surgeon which has recently been commissioned.
The total amount of help given to Addenbrookes hospital is c. £2m.
