This treasured local Charity was set up by public meeting in Henley in 1955 and is still run by local Trustees as a purely voluntary body.
Funding comes from small annual membership subscriptions, social fundraising events, donations and legacies.
We focus on carefully considered purchases and initiatives to help augment the provision of “one stop`’ medical services at our valued Community Hospital and to enhance the “patient experience”.
Our Committee includes medical representatives who help appraise the quality of any bids to our fund.
Recently funded items are a treadmill, ultrasound scanner, bladder scanner, neurological and ophthalmic equipment.
We also funded production of a Townlands patient services brochure and refreshments for the free Health Talks provided in the Hospital for the local community.
If you’d be interested to join us, our Committee meets up to 4 times a year, including an Annual General Meeting.
For 2020, we need to recruit a qualified Accountant to prepare the Annual Springtime Audit of our Accounts (drafted by our Hon Treasurer) and a new Chairperson to take over during the year.
All enquiries, please call Judith Nimmo-Smith (Chair of Trustees) on 07930 581732
