The Trolley Service is vital for those patients who can’t get to the shop, so the trolley volunteers take the shop to them! The trolleys stock confectionary, toiletries, books, crisps, snacks and stationery, in fact everything that a patient could possibly want!
Our Trolley volunteers are in direct contact with patients, and not only sell them the items they need but also spend some time to have a chat. This is always welcomed especially for those who have few or no visitors, so can be a vital link to the outside world.
ALL THE PROFIT from the Friends’ Shop and Trolley service is donated back to the West Suffolk Hospital to support patient care – see our recent list of items funded on the Fundraising page.
