Registered Charity no. 1160941


Originally the League of Friends, the charity was established in 1957 to support the hospital, its patients, staff and visitors by volunteering and raising funds to supplement the services provided by the NHS. More than sixty years later our aims are unchanged. We continue to benefit the patients and staff of Friarage Hospital and Hambleton & Richmondshire by:

  • Providing a range of volunteering opportunities
  • Improving the hospital environment
  • Providing state-of-the-art and additional equipment for the hospital and health centres
  • Supporting and developing NHS staff
    In the last sixty years, the enthusiasm and efforts of our hundreds, if not thousands, of amazing supporters have helped us raise over a staggering £6,000,000!

Thank you for your fantastic support
