The Friends' Shop
and Trolley Service


The Friends’ Shop is in the main entrance of
St Richard’s Hospital, and is open every day, including
weekends, apart from Christmas Day and Good Friday.











The Friends’ Shop supplies all sorts of necessities, and a few luxuries:

• Newspapers, magazines and books
• Greetings cards and stationery
• Gifts and toys
• Toiletries and essentials for a hospital stay
• Fruit, sandwiches, snacks, chocolates, sweets and cold drinks

The Shop Trolley serves patients throughout the hospital on a daily basis by visiting the wards.
About 100 dedicated volunteers staff the Shop & Trolley service, which is managed by a volunteer committee. There are no staff costs, and all funds raised go directly into equipment for the hospital. £78,000 was raised in 2011. The volunteers' gift of time provides both a service and much-needed equipment for our hospital.

New volunteers are always welcome – To join our team of volunteers contact
