What a great evening!

We had a very busy evening at our inaugural Friends Event on 24 May.

A group of existing and new friends joined the trustees and staff for a series of demonstrations and talks in the hospital atrium, followed by tours of the Radiology department and Physio Gym.

Thanks to everyone involved in setting up the evening and giving your time to share with our guests some of the amazing equipment that the Friends have been able to buy for the hospital, with the benefit of generous community donations.

And a special thanks to our existing friends and volunteers, plus the new friends and volunteers that joined us during the evening.

Spread the news .. we need more friends and fundraising

Please share with your friends and contacts the great work we will continue to do with your help to ensure Lymington Hospital can have essential equipment and facilities over and above that which the NHS can provide.
