There are a number of ways to support the Friends of Hammersmith Hospital
Is it time for a clean out?
Good As New Shop
Our charity shop is now open 4 days a week Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday
We a grateful for any new, used or unwanted items in good condition. Donations can be received in the charity shop or the Friends Gift shop anytime we are open.
Happy to receive Accessories, Clothes, DVDS and CDS, Homewares, Jewellery, Toys, Board Games and Puzzles
Books, Books and More Books... Please
Pop in with your bestsellers, or other books you'll never read or want to use again. You can donate these books directly to our shops here in the hospital during opening hours.
All monies raised through the sale of previously loved items contribute towards our funds to help support our Annual Project.
Becoming a Member of the Friends will provide us with additional income (further details of subscriptions and how to join can be found on the Membership page). We currently have 1,200 members who receive updates, Annual reports, and twice a year raffle tickets to help with our fund-raising activities.
Volunteering in one of our shops for a few hours a week will help our fund-raising activities and is also an opportunity to meet new people and make new friends.
We also offer short Work Experience attachments by prior arrangement, and with the agreement of parents and schools.
Knitting, Odd balls of wool and buttons - If you are keen knitters we are always in need of baby garments, cardigans, bootees, hats & blankets, and if you have any spare wool we would be very grateful. We can use wool of all kinds but a single ball of 3 ply will make a pair of baby’s booties and a bonnet for a premature baby. We would appreciate gifts of spare buttons, such as you would use for baby matinee jackets. There is a continual need for all of these items.
Sunshine Fund - Pop a penny or more into a jar every day that the sun shines, and send the total to the Administrator. Last year we raised £328.00 from your small change donations. Every penny will be gratefully received.
Purchase books from our trolley just outside the shop. All books are £1.00.
