The purpose of the Friends is to encourage and support the Hospital by the provision of equipment for the treatment and comfort of the patients and to support the staff.

Charities Mini Market Saturday 3rd November 2018

This will take place in the morning at the United Reformed Church in Malvern Link. The Friends will be doing refreshments and having a large stall for cakes, jams, books and jewellery. Donations of items for the stalls will be most welcome.

Grand Draw

The Friends have been very fortunate to receive a donation of a GTec AirRam MK2 Cleaner from Nick Grey of Grey Technology, and it has been decided to put it into a Grand Draw with many other prizes.

The draw will take place at the Christmas Fair on Saturday 8th December 2018.

Tickets will be available for sale at the Mini Charities Fair which will be held in the United Reformed Church Hall, Malvern Link on Saturday 3rd November 10 - 12 pm.

If you would like books of raffle tickets to sell please ring Libby 01886 832671 or Janet 01684 563235, please help us make this Grand Draw a Great Success!

Multi Faith Room

Image of Multi Faith Room
The Worcestershire Community Hospitals have pooled resources and appointed a new Chaplain, Andy Green. Andy visits Malvern Community Hospital on a Thursday but if able is willing to attend at any time on request. The Quiet Room at Malvern has been made into a multi-faith area.

Hospital Garden and Flower Beds

The ‘Friends’ received a request from Matron earlier in the year to fund a tidy up of the hospital gardens, and to bring more colour to the beds by planting flowers. The garden is a great space for patients, visitors and staff and it was not reaching its full potential.
