Volunteer Drivers Wanted

We are looking for volunteer drivers to take patients to their home, accompanied by staff, for a visit lasting about one hour. These visits will be by agreement and the driver would need to remain at the patient’s home before returning to Danesbury or QVM. The vehicle is automatic and you must be over 25 with a full UK driving licence.
If you think you may be able to help, please phone Suzy Caunt or Lizzie Williams on 01438 841846.  Thank you.

Brilliant day at Family Fun Day at Singlers Marsh on Saturday, 22nd June!  Our sincere thanks to everyone who contributed to making it such a success and raising another £560 for our charity.IMG_4610 (1)

 The work of the Friends depends on the generosity of our supporters. At our volunteers’ summer party we were delighted to receive two donations. One from a past patient whose friends raised £640 in thanks for the wonderful care she received during her stay in Danesbury. 

However, the major source of our revenue comes from our shop in Welwyn High Street. We receive tremendous support from the local community who supply us with a steady flow of donations for sale – and an equally enthusiastic stream of customers. An added bonus is that you will always find a friendly face and all the local news! 

As a registered charity the Friends are regulated by the Charity Commission. In accordance with their requirement we will hold our Annual General Meeting at Danesbury on Tuesday 22nd October at 5.30pm. If you would like to know about our work and the challenges we face we will be delighted to see you.
