Post-Covid, the new shop frontage has a long counter with stock visible through a clear Perspex screen fitted from the ceiling to the counter. This enables safe shopping for our customers. All our volunteers have been provided hand sanitiser to use during their shifts, and all have been trained in Health and Safety during Covid19.
Why have a hospital shop?
The hospital shop is the public face of The Friends. It provides a focal point within the hospital and contributes to raising funds for The Friends projects to support the hospital.
How is it run?
The shop is managed by our wonderful Shop Manager, Philippa and staffed entirely by our volunteers who give up their time to support us.
We are always keen for new volunteers to join us. If you would like to be part of our friendly team, learn new skills and help by providing a vital service for patients and visitors, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 8714 4074.
