Following government advice the Friends of Eastbourne Hospital have had to cancel all fund-raising events until at least the end of September.

Our main concern at this time is our volunteers’ and supporters’ health and safety, which is why we made the decision to close the Friends Radiotherapy Café, our trolley services  and the Friends Flower Shop. The Friends Shop is open for reduced hours currently 9 am – 4 pm Monday to Friday and for a few hours on Saturday and Sunday afternoons; we continue to follow Government and Trust advice and acknowledge that this might need to change.

The Friends of Eastbourne Hospital are here to support the Eastbourne DGH, its staff, patients and visitors; we will strive to do this at this difficult time.  As soon as we are able to, we will start arranging an autumn programme of events and hope that the people of Eastbourne continue to support us in the same generous way they always have.

We are still fund-raising for the Eastbourne DGH and this year’s special project, which is to raise £430,000 to Make Radiology Digital and we hope our members, volunteers, supporters and the general public will continue to support us.  Please click on the VirginMoneyGiving link below if you wish to donate and don’t forget to leave a message.

The Eastbourne DGH needs the public’s support now more than ever before.
