FETE 9 JULY 2014

A very pleasant and successful afternoon - we took £1442.70, which is far better than in any recent year -almost 50% up on last year! A very good effort on everyone's part. The weather certainly played a big part and it seemed that everyone enjoyed themselves.
The raffle held by Ruth Avery raised £532, a brilliant total - The Committee would like to thank Ruth Avery for her support.

The object of the League is to relieve patients and former patients of the Helston Community Hospital who are sick, convalescent; disabled, handicapped, infirm or in need of financial assistance and, generally to support the charitable work of the Hospital. The League supplements the service by providing facilities, buildings and equipment which may be required for the treatment of such patients.

The League works closely with the Primary Care Trust and the Matron and Staff to make this one of the best Community Hospitals in Cornwall. The League provided the "Jack Johns Suite" which was built onto the hospital for the use of patients families when they need to be with their "loved ones" for long periods of time. It gives them the opportunity to prepare a snack for themselves, shower and just relax for an hour without leaving the hospital. The League is also providing a Conservatory and Sensory Garden at the request of the Matron and Staff. (Click on "Purchases" for more photos
