We are extremely grateful that each year we receive unsolicited donations that enable us to enhance the well-being and comfort of patients, visitors and staff.

The goodwill of the public together with our fantastic volunteers and staff help us to keep administration costs to a bare minimum.  We have received donations from local groups, businesses, clubs, pubs and schools as well as from individuals and grateful patients. Legacies and ‘In Memoriam’ donations in lieu of flowers are welcomed.

Donations Which We Have Made

Over the past 50 years the League of Hospital Friends has donated hundreds of thousands of pounds to local hospitals.  It is amazing that in the last 15 years alone almost a quarter of a million pounds has been donated to help and support patient care.  We recognise that not everything can be provided through NHS funding and we believe that we can make a difference to local services by supporting the valuable work that they do.  The donations made to local hospitals range from equipment or small items that support patients whilst in hospitals.

Christmas Presents

Each year we provide a little bit of Christmas cheer for those patients who unfortunately have to spend their Christmas in hospital.  It has become a tradition that Santa makes special visits to each hospital a few days before Christmas to drop off his sack of presents.  These small gifts are much appreciated by our patients, not to mention the children who have the opportunity to ask Santa for those special presents they would like left on Christmas morning.

Cancer Support

The League of Hospital Friends has been a regular supporter of patients diagnosed with cancer and since 1998 has donated over £50,000 to the Chemothrerapy Unit at Stafford Hospital.  This funding has helped to purchase wigs for patients who have sadly lost their hair and provided leaflets that give much needed information for patients and their relatives.  In 2002 the League of Hospital Friends donated £30,000 towards the development of a Breast Care Unit to support the treatment of people diagnosed with Breast Cancer.
