St George's Hospital Charity New Website

The Challenge

St George’s Hospital Charity gives grants and raises funds to improve facilities at St George’s and the communities which use it. Every day, their work impacts patients, their families and friends and the staff who care for them.

St Georges Hospital Charity approached us for a new website to help raise awareness of the charity, increase online visibility, create a professional online presence (with new branding), become a platform for talking about the charity's work and act as an efficient way of receiving donations.

Our Approach

After submitting our proposal we were chosen to produce the new website for St George's Hospital Charity.  We consulted the various departments in the charity throughout the process, starting by user journey by reorganising and improving the navigation and site architecture to better serve the charities various audiences.

A funky new design was created to represent the charities new branding.  This ties into everything the client does, cemeting the brand and promoting their excellent work.

Single and monthly donations used to be taken via a third party website.  One of the charities key goals for the new site was to bring these "in-house" onto the website, taking payments via stripe.  We built blocks that can be placed anywhere with donation forms and a system to email users thanking them for their donations.  The backend system also allows the charity staff to download all donations so they can import them into Excel.

Stripe was chosen because it is efficient to work with, has an easy portal for the charity to view payments and monthly subscriptions, has excellent interaction with the site via the API, reasonable charges per transaction and is modern and secure.

As the project progressed we had weekly meetings with various departments at St George's Hospital Charity to take on feedback at each stage and ensure everyone is happy with ideas and their department is being represented fully in the new website.

We built facilities to load different types of events and a simple shop to sell charity products such as Christmas cards and books. 

Using ConcreteCMS, the new site gives the charity flexibility to add and develop the site, which their marketing team take full advantage of.  We provided full training to staff, user guides and continue to supply hosting and ongoing support.

We started working with David at Made Simple Media when we needed alterations and pages added to our website. He has advised us well on what we might like to add, has always been a pleasure to deal with, is reliable, and responds quickly. I would highly recommend working with David and MSM!

Due to business expansion I needed to make some amendments to a existing WordPress website. I asked Made Simple Media for some suggestions on the ideas I had and he was super helpful and came up with some great ideas to make the website perform and navigate better. Him and his team then did a great job in putting the ideas to practice and I was kept informed as the work was underway. Highly recommend Dave and his team!

Dave was so patient and understanding when it came to explaining the process and how things work. I highly recommend MSM to anyone who needs that extra help understanding the fundamentals of website building.

We are delighted with the website that Made Simple Media created for St Andrew's Church, N16. They really understood our vision for the project and turned it into reality, whilst suggesting additional ideas throughout. The whole project was seamless and enjoyable.
