League of Friends commits to £65,000 spend in Clatterbridge

A charity which provides extra support to patients at Clatterbridge is celebrating an important milestone with a commitment to spend £65,000 in the health park.

Listeners have heard about the investment as part of the celebrations for the Clatterbridge Hospitals League of Friends’ 65th anniversary.

Presenter Phil Price was invited along to the launch event along with volunteers, nursing staff and the Mayor and Mayoress of Wirral.

The charity provides a link between the public and the hospitals to raise money for additional amenities and other services.

“They are my friends now. We’ve got the same priority. We want to make sure our patients have the best possible experience while they’re in hospital.”
 - Gaynor Westray, Director of Nursing, Wirral University Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

Volunteers work tirelessly to raise funds for the League and the money will go towards several projects across the site over the next twelve months.

A number of events are being planned over the year to help.

Supporters have a chance to win an overnight spa break for two at Thornton Hall Hotel and Spa or a number of other great prizes if they take part in the charity’s grand raffle.

A number of bands are getting together at the Lyceum, Port Sunlight on Friday 12th April 2019 for a ukuleleathon. Tickets for that event are £5 each.

And on Saturday 12th July 2019 there is an afternoon tea at Thornton Hall Hotel and Spa.
