Friends of the Friarage logo

Friends of the Friarage proactively support the best possible health care for every patient within the Friarage Hospital and the Health Centres of Hambleton & Richmondshire.


Thanks to fundraising activities, charitable donations and legacies, we purchase state of the art medical equipment, update the hospital environment and support the development of innovative services. We also provide smaller items, such as Christmas presents for patients who have to be in hospital over that period. Committed volunteers provide around 5,500 hours of service every year within the Friarage Hospital Shop, the Hospital Trolley Service and the Outpatients Escort Service.


Everything that our supporters do helps to improve the care and well-being of patients, visitors and staff, above the standards that NHS funding alone allows.
