Gifts

The great success that the League of Friends has achieved in raising funds has enabled it to provide a very large number of gifts to the hospital. In 2016, approximately £250,000 worth of equipment and other items was pledged to the hospital – these are listed in the table below which also reveals just how varied these gifts can be, not only in type but in value as well. But irrespective of these variations, each item will have been requested by the ward or department in question because of the great benefit it would bring to patients and staff.
