The Friends of West Suffolk Hospital is a group of volunteers that raise money for the charity which supports the hospital by buying additional equipment for the trust which would necessarily be available.

There are over 70 people that help run the Friends Shop and it’s trolley service which visits the wards for those patients that may not be mobile enough to visit the shop on the ground floor.

There are 7 trustees, Julie MacLeod as Chairman, Treasurer Sarah Steele, Vice Chair Judy Cory and additional trustees Angie Pearce, David Cory and Rosemary Longman. The trustees committee meet alternate months to consider funding applications and business within the organisation.
