How you can support The Friends in 2023

There are many ways you can support The Friends in 2023 – here are six of the best ways to make a difference. Let’s support our local community hospital and help ensure its long-term survival for the benefit of our children and grandchildren.


It’s fun and rewarding to volunteer with The Friends. Meet friendly new people, contribute to a worthwhile local cause, and learn new skills.

We are looking for people with book-keeping, gardening and IT skills and those willing to collect donations or work in the shop. Contact us for more information.

Become a Member

Without the support of our members, we’d be unable to fund vital projects. Put simply, members (along with our volunteers) make what we do possible. Members attend our Annual General Meeting and drinks reception. Contact us to find out more about becoming a Member.

Donate or Leave a Gift in your Will

Donations and bequests are always much appreciated. Your support ensures that the Friends can speedily respond to requests for equipment and improvements.

Switch to Amazon Smile, Give as you Live or Shop & Give

When you shop online, Amazon and other retailers give us a commission as a donation without it costing you a penny more. Find out more at Give as you Live and Shop & Give.

Visit our hospital shop

Don’t forget we have a wonderful hospital shop which stocks a range of food and drink, healthy snacks, toys, stationery and much more.

Participate in events and fundraising

Attempt a fundraising challenge or participate in one of our forthcoming events to help raise money for our projects. Have a look at our JustGiving Page.
