As Covid-19 restrictions continue to change the Friends of Eastbourne Hospital are adapting procedures in accordance with government guidelines. The Main Shop in the foyer is now open for longer hours and we have resumed the trolley lunch service for staff . This service only operates in the ‘green’ ward areas and the trolley does not go onto the wards, to help keep volunteers, staff and patients safe. The Flower Shop and the Radiotherapy Cafe remain closed for the time being and we are not operating an afternoon shop trolley service for patients.
We are pleased to announce that our Virtual Art Exhibition is ‘open’ on-line on Friday 6 November until Monday 30 November 2020. Please follow the link and have a look at the original pictures, which are all for sale. 20% of the sale price will come to the Friends of Eastbourne Hospital.
Other planned events have had to be cancelled until 2021.
The Friends of Eastbourne Hospital are here to support the Eastbourne DGH, its staff, patients and visitors; we will strive to continue to do this at this difficult time. As soon as we are able to, we will start arranging a 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.
