Become a Friend
Our members are key to the organisation and we are very keen to increase the numbers of those who contribute through regular subscriptions. The suggested minimum subscription is £10 but we encourage those who can to give more. These subscriptions provide about 30% of our core income.
Members receive a twice yearly Chairman's letter and e-mails from time to time to alert them to the many events which The Friends organise.
If additionally you would like to volunteer to help at these events or to join in our regular garden work parties we would be delighted. But there is no commitment to volunteering by becoming a Friend. Most Friends simply support our work through regular annual giving.
You can join us by filling out an application form, which also includes a Gift Aid Declaration.
If you sign the attached Gift Aid declaration The Friends, as a registered charity, can reclaim an additional 25% from the tax authorities. To minimise the costs of collecting future subscriptions we ask that you also complete the Bank Standing Order form.
You can download an application form by clicking on the link below:.
Both the application form and the standing order should be sent to our Membership Secretary at the address shown on the application.
Thank you for this support for your local Hospital.
