Christmas Fair December 2018
The Dolls House was popular, 68 names were chosen and the winning name was Highfield.
Our 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!
Fund raising by James Flann
James was inspired to raise this money for the hospital which he described as wonderful, because of the care and dedication his father received from all the nursing staff whilst a patient in the hospital. He emphasised how lucky Malvern is to have such a fantastic facility in the Town.
Mad Hatters Tea Party, 3rd September 2017
The following photographs were taken at the Summer Fete on 15th July 2017. We had luck with the weather, but competition from the Women’s Wimbledon Finals. Never the less we had an excellent afternoon with a steady flow of people supporting our stalls. It was a lovely atmosphere and many sat and chatted with cake and a cup of tea, or strawberries and cream donated by John Davies, S & A Produce based in Hereford. It was good to see Link Nurseries up and running again and they joined us bringing a selection of plants and vegetables. The Co-op Malvern Link supported our raffle with some excellent prizes, as did others resulting in a £438.00 profit. We had a good variety of items for sale on our tables including Sally Baker’s cards for all occasions, Ann Fitzgerald’s textiles, Ice Cream from the Benitos Ice Cream Cart, and these plus a few personal donations helped us raise a total of £1,568.43 at this year’s Summer Fete. As usual the profit will be split equally between the Hospital and our own funds.
The following photographs were taken at the AGM on 17th March. At the AGM we appointed a new Chairman, Julian I’Anson.
Julian was Mayor of Malvern in 2015 and Deputy Mayor the year before. Julian had several meetings with Committee members and a conducted tour of the Community Hospital before he made up his mind to accept our request. At the AGM Julian stated that he was delighted to have been asked to be Chairman of the ‘Friends’, and he was also pleased to join a group of people who were actually doing something positive for the NHS at a time when there is so much negativity associated with it. His nomination was accepted unanimously.
2016 Christmas Fayre
The following are pictures from the 2016 Christmas Fayre. There was an excellent turnout for the 2016 Christmas Fayre at the Malvern Community Hospital on Saturday 3rd December. The generosity of our supporters enabled us to fill many tables with top class items to win or buy, this together with a very enthusiastic public who turned up to take part helped us raise £1,202 towards our work with the Community Hospital, patients and staff.
Of the total £1,202 the top 3 were – Jewellery at £205, Raffle at £175 and Cakes at £129.
