Friends of Malvern Community Hospital would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Christmas Fair

We had an excellent Christmas Fair this year, our stalls were buzzing from the word go. The Grand Draw attracted many and the stall holders were writing names and phone numbers frantically right up to the draw at 11.45am. We had 32 prizes in the end and our thanks to everyone who donated prizes from Nick Grey with the Air-Ram cleaner to an anonymous supporter who came to the stall with a bottle of wine. The draw raised £712.00 in total.

The Dolls House was popular, 68 names were chosen and the winning name was Highfield.

Unfortunately, Maureen could not be with us this year but her family did sterling work sorting the jewellery out for the fair and manning the stall, £128.00 was taken. Our other stalls were all very busy but notably toiletries took £241 and the ever-popular cake stall raised £165.

We had some tremendous support from members, hospital staff, supporters and the Committee. Items flooded in for the stalls, and with the help of the hospital staff all the stalls were manned adequately. We made £1,646.43 overall. A huge ‘thank you’ to everyone!

Multi Faith Room

The Worcestershire Community Hospitals have pooled resources and appointed a new Chaplain, Andy Green. Andy visits Malvern Community Hospital on a Thursday but if able is willing to attend at any time on request. The Quiet Room at Malvern has been made into a multi-faith area.

Hospital Garden and Flower Beds

The ‘Friends’ received a request from Matron earlier in the year to fund a tidy up of the hospital gardens, and to bring more colour to the beds by planting flowers. The garden is a great space for patients, visitors and staff and it was not reaching its full potential.
