League Of Their Own

Coffee Club listeners have heard how some of Clatterbridge's most inspirational volunteers have raised thousands of pounds for new equipment in the hospital.

The League of Friends has given almost £8,000 to help with skin treatment for patients.

Chairman Ken Arnold told presenter Phil Rostance how the dermatology unit will benefit from the donation.

This includes two padded and movable and reclining armchairs which makes it more comfortable for patients while receiving intravenous infusions for their skin conditions.

The charity also made a donation towards a walk in ultra violet light machine which helps to treat skin conditions.

We are delighted to be able to help with funds for this equipment at the dermatology unit in Clatterbridge Hospital. We’re pleased to be able to support the excellent care this fabulous unit provides. - Ken Arnold, Chairman of the Clatterbridge Hospitals League of Friends

 

Ken also told listeners about the history of the League and the various fund-raising events they hold. He also promoted the League's own lottery where 50% of profit is ploughed back into the charity.
