The League of Friends cares and provides support for patients of the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, and we have been doing so since 1966.
The League of Friends supports the work of the hospital in so many ways and is always there for patients, relatives and staff. The 150 or so volunteers in our 4 shops offer a smile and a cup of tea when needed, along with other refreshments. Confectionary, newspapers and toiletries can be purchased and are taken round the wards daily for the comfort and convenience of patients. Our regularly changed flower arrangements brighten up entrances and waiting areas.
All profits from the shops and every penny from donations, legacies and enjoyable fundraising events are used to buy equipment for the RSH. We are completely autonomous so, in conversation with Trust staff, we decide where the money entrusted to us is spent.
Over the last two years in the region of £1.5m has been spent on much needed equipment to improve patient care.
