About us

We raise money to support our patients and staff.

We provide amenities and equipment not supplied or funded by the NHS. These make our patients' time in our hospitals and community sites more comfortable.

We also fund some small research projects.

We raise money through donations, legacies, and fundraising activities including:

  • The Friends shop
  • book sales
  • cash collection machines
  • Christmas and mini markets
  • Christmas raffle and auction

Everyone is welcome to join The Friends. 

All we ask for is a regular annual donation of £10. Any extra donations on top of this are always appreciated.

Please contact us for more information about:

  • donations
  • leaving us a gift to The Friends in your will
  • volunteering opportunities
  • applying for grants
