About the charity – League of Friends

Raising over £20 million for the RJAH

The League of Friends was set up in 1961 and since then has raised in excess of £20 million to improve and maintain an exemplary quality of patient care at the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (RJAH).

About the RJAH

The RJAH is a world class centre of excellence for the treatment and care of orthopaedics. The Friends give essential support for patients, relatives and staff by providing services, organising volunteers, funding equipment, issuing grants and supporting wellbeing for RJAH. From providing toothbrushes to funding an endoscopic surgical kit, we are at the heart of RJAH as a good friend should be.
