The Ludlow Branch of the League of Friends of The Orthopaedic Hospital Oswestry was formed in 1971 making it the oldest and most southerly branch. In the intervening 45 years, the Branch has raised thousands of pounds towards the facilities at the hospital.

The focus of our fundraising is an annual Christmas Fair which is held at Ludlow Racecourse every November. Over the last five years we have raised an average of £10,000 a year for the hospital.

In 2015 the Christmas Fair raised £11,500 which was put towards buying a specially designed hoist for the new Anti-Gravity Machine.

We have a dedicated committee of 11 volunteers who do all the work organising and running the Christmas Fair. In 2016 the Christmas Fair raised £14,500 and in 2017 it raised £12,000!
