Having nursed all my working life it is enjoyable being part of a group who try to make clients in our hospital and community have the best equipment available using monies kindly donated to the league of friends and also to raise money through some of our activity

As a former paediatric nurse, my experience is within the health service and as a senior manager I had responsibility for authorising charitable funding within my specific areas. I feel that supporting Wallingford hospital through the Friends is a positive way to ensure that we are providing specific needs for staff and patients. The aim is always to ensure that the funding is meaningful and will make a difference to the care and well being of those within the hospital.

I am interested in working with an organisation who are involved with the community. I see the League of Friends as being able to make a positive contribution to the well-being and general welfare of patients through well directed funding and am pleased to be part of such an organisation.  I hope that my experience and working with the team will assist the charity in delivering its aims.

I’ve always wanted to “do my bit”, particularly for something that supports the community where I live. The community hospital is an important part of a community and helps when people are in particular need and I’m glad to be able to give my time to support it.

Committee member I like being on the Committee of the League of Friends because it offers me an enjoyable way of supporting the excellent work of Wallingford Community Hospital. The Committee is well led, all the members work in a friendly way and our activities are all fun to contribute to.
