The League of Friends are looking for volunteers to open the cafe from 5.00 - 7.45 on weekdays and to remain open on Saturdays from 12.00 - 7.45 p.m. And all day Sundays. A trial run has proved that this is popular with staff and visitors to the hospital. It is only lack of volunteers that has brought a stop to the trial.
Shifts would be as per our weekly shifts on the weekends. 9.30 - 12.00, 12.00 - 2.30, 2.30 - 5.00 and 5.00 - 8.00 p.m. 5.00 - 8.00 p.m. - would be needed on weekdays. Our Saturday mornings in the cafe are covered but we do need a volunteer for the shop at this time.
We have now raised and spent over £800,000 for items for the Hospital and look forward to adding to this total in the future however we can only do this with an increase in our volunteers.
Providing a service for those who work in the Hospital is the aim and I am sure that there are many out there who have been patients at some time in their life. Please help us to provide this service for the staff. After all, the Hospital does not close at 5.00 pm each day or weekends.
