A group of volunteers (formerly The League of Friends) who raise money to buy necessary equipment for the hospital and to provide a shop for staff and patients to purchase toiletries, fruit, drinks, sweets, and other snacks as well as books and magazines. Twice a week, a trolley with these goods is taken round the wards to supply patients who cannot get to the shop. The shop is situated in the corridor from the main entrance to the left of the reception desk.
They are in need of more volunteers to help run the shop which has a simple to operate till and all items priced. If you could spare a couple of hours, either weekly or fortnightly; you would be supported, encouraged and welcomed. Please contact their Secretary – Sheila Hearn on 01295 250992 or visit the shop and speak to the volunteer behind the counter.
