Registered Charity No: 233828
The Friends of Whitstable Hospital & Healthcare is a voluntary organisation and registered charity which provides a wide range of support, care and fundraising services to primary healthcare in the Whitstable area
Over the years the Friends have raised considerable funds which has enabled us to provide equipment and patient amenity items for the hospital and for local patients. We have also contributed funding for items such as X-ray, diagnostics and specialist clinics so that now all patients have the benefit of more services being provided locally in Whitstable.
Many of our members do supporting work at the Hospital and also in the community where our volunteers visit and befriend folk being cared for at home and their families and carers. We organise various social opportunities – including tea and lunch parties, and a popular monthly Silver Song Club at St John’s Church, Argyle Road – as well as a fortnightly dementia support café afternoon at Whitstable Health Centre. At Estuary View Medical Centre our volunteers manage Friends Café serving drinks and light refreshments to patients, visitors and staff.
If you could spare some time, why not become a volunteer with the Friends?
