CHRISTMAS AT MILFORD HOSPITAL
The annual 'thank you' lunch for staff and volunteers was very well attended on Tuesday 10 December 2013. Patients and visitors appreciated the carol concert for on Thursday 19th December and our thanks go to the church choir for leading the singing. Every in-patient received a League of Friends inscribed mug on Christmas Day. The hospital coped very well with the disruption to power supplies over the Christmas period.
STORE COLLECTIONS IN 2013
Thanks to all the generous shoppers at Sainsbury's and Waitrose, (and Gift Aid) our funds have been boosted by a very handsome £795, making a grand total of over £1000 from all our 2013 store collections. We are very grateful for the support shown by the local community. We hope to be repeating this success during 2014 and have already been allocated Sunday 19th October 2014 to collect outside Secrett's Farm Shop whilst the Farmers' Market holds its Apple Day.
ANNUAL GARDEN PARTY
The Friends Garden Party for patients, visitors and volunteers was held on 22 August 2013, on a lovely sunny afternoon. Most patients came out, with their visitors, and enjoyed the entertainment provided by the singer and her accompanist from 'Music in Hospitals'. As ever, Suren and his kitchen staff prepared a wonderful selection of yummy cakes that were very popular, as were the strawberries kindly donated by Harry Hall at Tuesley Farm. It was very nice to see a former patient who, having been at last year's party, came back with his family specially for this year's, mainly for the cakes!
