Gareth Shaw, the Ward Manager contacted us to ask if we could source a Record Player for the Ward. They already had a supply of vinyl records but nothing on which to play them. The Friends were delighted to help and purchased a suitable unit which was presented to Gareth and his team on Thursday last week. It is hoped that the patients will be able to select records themselves and play them on familiar equipment – something that is difficult to do with modern digital devices. The record player was presented by Elaine Coulthard, President of the Friends and Tom Webster the group Treasurer.
Today the friends held a very successful Tombola in the Richard Salt Unit with over 70 prizes being won. Many thanks to the Patients, Visitors and Staff who bought tickets. The funds raised will go towards the purchase of much needed equipment for the benefit of patients at the hospital. We would also thank the HEFT fundraising team for their help and support.
The friends have donated a tree and lights to bring a little Christmas spirit to patients, relatives and staff visiting the Treatment Centre.
If you have received fantastic care from staff at Good Hope Hospital and want to wish then or somebody close to you a Merry Christmas, our Christmas Wishing Tree is for you!
We are inviting everyone to write a personalised message on the Tags provided and tie it on the Christmas tree for patients, staff, families and friends to read.
Tags cost £1:00 each and are provided next to the tree
