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.

Our fundraising during £2014 – 2015 has enabled us to fund:

• Donation of an OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) machine used for retinal screening
and macular/AMD clinics at King's Mill Hospital £77,000
• Pain Frequency Generator at King's Mill Hospital £19,230
• Multifunctioning bed for the Intensive Critical Care Unit £22,295
