Registered charity number. 207408

The League of Friends of the King's Lynn Area Hospitals was registered as a charity in 1953. In that time the willing band of volunteers, who staff the hospital shop and carry out other fundraising activities, have raised millions of pounds which has been spent on essential equipment for the hospital.

Valuable equipment

The League of Friends said: "Unfortunately due to the COVID-19 pandemic we have not provided anywhere the amount of equipment we normally would but for the year ending 31st March, 2020 we spent 1,115,523, including 25,000 donation to the Breast Biopsy System; Little Journey App and Headsets - Anaesthetic Pre-assessment 4,730 (to prepare children for surgery) and donation of 500,000 to the new Radiology Information System which is not yet operational. Other purchases since then include:-

  • Readybed Sleeper Chairs - 4,638 - to allow parents to overnight stay on Rudham Ward
  • Bulk Food Trolley - 4,078 - Rudham Ward to allow flexibility to provide small/large portion
  • Nebulisers - 9,645 - Critical Care Outreach
  • Little Journey App & Headsets - 4,730 - Anaesthetic Pre-assessment - to prepare children for surgery

We are extremely grateful for the continued support of the League and the hard work of all of their volunteers."
