A CHARITY which fundraises for the Orthopaedic Hospital in Gobowen has picked up a new support for 2020.
The League of Friends (LoF) to the Robert Jones & Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital (RJAH) will be joined by Oswestry business Woodhead Oswestry Sales and Lettings who, prior to the pandemic, generously funded the purchase of new aprons for LoF volunteers.
Victoria Sugden, charity director, thanked owner Kate Woodhead and her team for their support and funding for the aprons for the volunteers.
She added: “They are very smart indeed and ensure volunteers are instantly recognisable.
“We are all very much looking forward to reopening our voluntary services when safe to do so and welcoming our volunteer family back to the hospital.”
Kate added: “We are proud to have been asked to support the LoF, who are at the heart of the community.
“Having had loved ones in the hospital and also long standing family connections we know how important the volunteers are to patients.
“Actions speak louder than words and we are thrilled to help these hardworking volunteers.”
The LoF has more than 350 working across an array of different roles throughout the RJAH Hospital.
There are currently 18 different roles volunteers cover that range from working within the coffee shop to meal assisting on the Midlands Centre for Spinal Injuries.
