Lymington Hospital Friends (LHF) Charity

Lymington Hospital Friends is a charity based at Lymington New Forest Hospital with the primary objective of supporting the hospital and helping to improve the care, comfort and wellbeing of patients, above and beyond what the NHS can fund and provide.

As part of our commitment to ensuring that we are completely open and transparent about our fundraising and spending, we have adopted the Code of Fundraising Practice and developed our Fundraising Promise.

Our Fundraising Promise
