Clock Cricket volunteers needed!

Clock Cricket is now embedded in our Community Hospitals. Richard Hill, MBE, from Clock Cricket handed over our Cricket equipment to us on 09.02.22. The equipment was kindly funded by The Friends of Danesbury and QVM. Thank you to them and to Sean and Richard from Clock Cricket for bringing laughter, and so much more, into our units.


The Friends exist to support the work of the National Health Services based at The Queen Victoria Memorial Hospital and the Danesbury Neurological Centre in Welwyn, Hertfordshire.

Set in pleasant, rural surroundings, these two hospitals together provide support and specialist therapy for patients having a wide range of debilitating conditions. In the great majority of cases, these patients are able to make significant progress towards a better life, thanks to the skills, care and dedication of the staff.

The NHS is always short of resources and we raise money, from donations and through the operation of our charity shop, which enables us to purchase equipment, services and facilities which directly benefit patients. We also help the staff in their efforts to provide the highest standards of care.

Our website will tell you more about the work done at the Queen Victoria Memorial Hospital and the Danesbury Neurological Centre.

Want to help our charity?

Without the support of all our volunteers we would not be able to run our Charity shop in Welwyn High Street. The shop is our main source of income and therefore our focal point… it is also a hub of activity for the village. Click here to find out more
