Open Day (30th April 2016)
The Open Day was a great success and over 100 people went on guided tours of the hospital. Many of the hospital staff had given their time on the day and everyone found the tours very informative and were impressed with the hospital and the facilities and also appreciative of how much the Friends have contributed. The Friends provided tea and cake on the day and over £120 was raised.
