PATIENTS AND STAFF RECEIVE CHRISTMAS GIFTS FROM FRIENDS OF ST MARY’S

253

Volunteers and partners of the Friends of St Mary’s Hospital did a Christmas Day round of the wards on Monday, to give small gifts from their trolley to patients and staff.

The exercise, lasting over 2 hours, is an annual event of the Friends, who run shops and cafes at the hospital and Ryde Health Centre. This year the scheme was partly funded by the donation of £100 from a hospital volunteer.

Among those giving the trolley party a send-off in the foyer were the Friends’ chairman, Lesley Myland, who greatly appreciated the response to her earlier appeal for people give up time on the big day.
