What We Do

Friends of the Friarage proactively support the best possible health care for every patient within the Friarage Hospital and residents 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.

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.
