League of Friends (Newark)

The League of Friends of the Newark Hospital were formed in April 1957. The Friends are a motivated and active voluntary organisation committed to fundraising to enhance the patient services at our local community hospital. We do not have any paid fundraisers. The Friends are able to provide much needed equipment and comforts for the benefit of patients, visitors and staff through income raised by the work of our team of fantastic volunteers.                             

The Friends, supported by the Sherwood Forest Hospital Volunteers also run the Coffee and Gift Shop and the Outpatients' Tea Bar both of which are extremely popular. We continue to hold our usual events which include quiz nights, tombolas and very successful raffles. Any donations to support our fundraising activities would be very much appreciated.
