The League of Hospital Friends (Mansfield & Sutton) was established in 1948. Since the League of Hospital Friends (Mansfield & Sutton) was formed its members have raised more than £3 million in donations for the benefit of hospital patients across the area.
The League supports Millbrook Mental Health Unit, Mansfield Community Hospital and King's Mill Hospital, channelling funds to them from its charity shops in Forest Town and Sutton. As well as its charity shops the League also raises funds through its many fundraising activities.
The League of Hospital Friends held their annual Summer Fayre on Wednesday 6th July at Mansfield Community Hospital. £467 was raised from stalls including cakes, books and gifts and a tombola and raffle. Pictured is volunteer Kath Smith on the handbag stall.
