QEQM League of Friends

Welcome to our brand-new website! Please have a good look around and let us know what you think.

We are a charity dedicated to making a real difference to our local hospital by raising funds to help buy:

  • Medical equipment to help with diagnosis, treatment and care such as ultrasound machines, cots, portable scanners
  • Comforts for patients e.g. leg rests, television sets, blinds for wards
  • Amenities for the hospital's staff e.g. fridges, lockers

We also provide a service by running a Tea Bar & Shop in the Hospital plus a trolley that goes around the Wards. We are run & staffed entirely by volunteers.

Registered Charity Number: 210234

Volunteer

Whatever their role, our volunteers enjoy what they do – most have been with us for many years.

  • Would you like to join our committee of Trustees? You would be contributing to overseeing the work of our registered charity including helping to organise fundraising events and considering applications for funding.
  • We are looking for more volunteers who can spare a few hours each week to work in our Tea Bar & Shop and/or on our trolley that goes around the Hospital. You would be joining a team that provides a much-valued service to the patients, staff & visitors, is an integral part of the Hospital community and earns valuable income for our charity.
