The Ashford Hospital League of Friends, established in 1962, is a voluntary charitable organisation whose main objective is to provide support for patients and staff of Ashford Hospital.
Funds are raised through the shop (pictured above) on the ground floor of the hospital which stocks a range of greeting cards, new hand-knitted items, toiletries and good-as-new books, puzzles and bric-a-brac items. With the funds raised, we’ve recently been able to purchase items at a cost of around £17,000.
Fundraising events are planned throughout the year, with events coming up including:
- 21st November - Race Night - tickets available from the shop at £10 (includes a fish and chips supper).
- The Craft Group - 24th November, 3rd and 8th December (in the main foyer at Ashford Hospital) selling Christmas crafts and novelties, suitable for gifts or stocking fillers.
- The Ashford Hospital Carol Service will be held in the Education Centre on Tuesday 15th December at 2.30pm.
