League of Friends Raised £12000 Last Year

Ann Mumford, Chair of Scilly's League of Friends

The St Mary’s League of Hospital and Community Friends’ Chairman says she is happy with their funds raised in the last year.

Ann Mumford has told members that income of £12,000 was generated without any major events.

The sponsored John O’Groats to Land’s End cycle ride last year
brought in £1800 and the same amount was donated by the Atlantic Hotel
from their Saturday coffee mornings.

The annual dinner fundraiser brought in just over £1400.

The club has awarded around £8000 to the hospital to pay for  items like
new curtains and bedding.

They’ve also paid for the travel pod incubator so infants can be stabilised for evacuation to the mainland and fundraising will continue so the League of Friends reserves can be reimbursed.

Ann says that the hospital car service is being used less frequency with the arrival of the Buzza Bus but they are committed to continuing with it as long as it is needed and they have willing drivers.
