What We Do

Committee meetings are held on the Clatterbridge Site on the 3rd Wednesday of each month. Grant Requests (Pinks) & Fund Raising Events are discussed.  All funds are raised by Volunteers & donated to Clatterbridge Hospital in the form of Grant Requests (Pinks) from the on-site Wards or Departments, donated items must stay on the Clatterbridge site.  Grant Requests are often for equipment that the NHS does not have a budget to purchase, but would greatly benefit patients’ hospital experience.

The Annual General Meeting provides an overview of the years achievements & accounts, a Guest Speaker provides an entertaining talk, Awards are presented & to end the evening, refreshments are enjoyed.
