League of Friends

Both Derriford Hospital and the Royal Eye Infirmary are supported by League of Friends, who work tirelessly for the Trust by providing funding to purchase equipment and improve patient care.

Derriford Hospital League of Friends 

Derriford Hospital's League of Friends has been raising money for over 25 years and to date the League has spent more than £1.2m on medical and other equipment for the hospital.

The League owns two shops in the main entrance of Derriford, a fruit and flower shop and a bookshop. In addition funds are raised through a variety of activities including coffee mornings, fashion shows, draws and festivals. Aluminium cans and used postage stamps are also collected for resale. Donations of good quality books for the bookshop are also sought. 

The League of Friends will accept donations of all kinds;  bequests, in memory of and simply to say thankyou. Cheques should be made payable to 'Derriford Hospital League of Friends' and posted to the address below.

The League is always looking for willing volunteers to help either in the shops, by taking a fruit trolley around the wards and helping with fundraising projects.

Royal Eye Infirmary League of Friends

New Developments: The Royal Eye Informary (REI) League of Friends formed in 1975 and has since raised more than £1.5million. The money has been used to provide much needed equipment for eye patients at the hospital and in many cases for them to be treated with the latest technology. Much of the money is left to the League in the form of bequests but willing volunteers also raise funds through collection days and by running the refreshment facilities at the REI. The League of Friends will accept donation of all kinds. Cheques should be made payable to the 'League of Friends of the Royal Eye Infirmary' and sent to the address below:
