Shrewsbury Hospital League of friends

Over the last six months the League of Friends of the RSH  have donated the following:

  • £300,000 towards the new cancer centre at Royal Shrewsbury Hospital; 
  • £137,000 for digital breast screening equipment adding to our previous donation of £192,000, which now means that the Breast screening prorgamme for Shrops and Mid-Wales has extended its age limit from 50-70yrs up to 47-73 yrs. 
  • Most recently we have agreed to provide the full funding of £523,000 to replace/upgrade all the Patient monitors in the RSH, half of which has already been paid and the monitors are up and running and benefiting many patients.

This Friday 10th August, on the opening day of the Flower Show, we are delighted that Celebrity Chef James Martin has kindly agreed to draw our winning tickets for our annual Summer Draw, it will be taking place at mid-day in the Sponsors Marquee. So far the draw has raised £4,500, already more than last summer, all proceeds will be put towards the purchase of hospital equipment.

The following fundraising events will be taking place over the next few months with more Autumn/ Winter events planned.

  • Monday 20th August: Luncheon & Flower demonstration with entertainment hosted by Jayne Mott, to be held in a marquee at 156 Longden Rd, Shrewsbury,  (120 tickets have been sold)
