What We Do
We raise money by organising and running a wide range of events across the area and by seeking donations or legacies.
We talk to Hospital staff and doctors to find out what sort of equipment or improvement in facilities will help or enhance the quality of the hospital's services, or make it possible to provide a local service which will avoid patients having to travel further afield for appointments or treatment. We do not provide things that the NHS can and should provide.
Some of our volunteers provide a valuable service assisting on the wards by helping with patient meals or reading or chatting to patients when they do not have visitors.
Details of items we have purchased can be found on our Events & News Pages.
We welcome Members and Volunteers who wish to help or support us - see Get Involved
How We Work
We are a registered Charity and a Company Limited by Guarantee. Our members elect a committee at our AGM. The committee meets on a regular basis to agree fundraising plans and discuss with members of the hospital team how funds should be spent. As we are a Company Limited by Guarantee and have Charity status, some of the committee are Board members and some Trustees. Details of the current Committee can be found on The Committee page.
Our Memorandum and Articles and Charity Registration govern how we work and can be found by clicking on the hyperlinks.
We have a clear policy on privacy which we apply to all that we do.
