Celebrating 70 Years of Support: Our 70th Anniversary Celebration!

On May 21st 2024, at 12:30 pm, we were thrilled to invite the community to a momentous occasion – our 70th anniversary celebration!

This significant milestone is a testament to our enduring commitment to supporting our community hospital and a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has been part of our journey.

Seven decades of dedication

Everyone joined us outside the hospital, where we gathered to commemorate seven decades of dedication, progress, and community service.

Whether you were a long-time supporter or a newcomer curious to learn more about us, we welcomed you with open arms.

This celebration was an opportunity to reflect on our past achievements, and we look forward to a future filled with promise and innovation.


What’s a celebration without some delicious treats? We indulged our sweet tooth with scrumptious cupcakes, beautifully decorated to mark this special occasion.

Alongside the cupcakes, we provided an array of refreshments as our supporters mingled and enjoyed swapping stories.

Our Community

Our 70th anniversary was more than just a celebration; it was a gathering of our community, a chance to reconnect with our supporters, new and old and share stories and memories that have shaped our journey.

Over the years, Teddington Memorial Hospital has evolved, but one thing has remained constant – our commitment to supporting exceptional care and service.

Our Supporters

This milestone wouldn’t have been possible without the unwavering support of our dedicated trustees and staff, compassionate hospital staff, and the trust of patients and their families.

We celebrated each of you who contributed to our success and helped us reach this remarkable milestone.

Together, we honoured the past and seek to embrace the future.

It was a day of joy, reflection, and appreciation, and we were excited to share it with all of you.
