Our role at St George’s has remained unchanged for the last 70 years; the Friends continue to raise funds in order to enhance the well-being of patients and staff here at St George’s.
Any ward, unit or department within the St George’s site can apply for funding. The Friends Trustees meet once a month and will consider any request that will benefit patients or staff.
We like to fund items that are perhaps very simple and small but benefit many, such as a garden shed for Children’s Play. Not what you would expect but erected in the paediatric garden and fill it with toys and activities it takes on a completely different life. To enable children to playing outside provides a positive experience thus helping with a child’s well-being and recovery.
