This means regular updating and purchase of additional major equipment has taken place.
Since the new hospital was opened in 2004 in excess of £1,000,000 has been raised, which has funded some major pieces of equipment as well as many smaller items.
In addition we:
Provide Christmas presents for all the patients
Maintain a small hospital shop

Look after a wildlife garden
