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.

 The Friends have always been very well supported by the Welwyn community. The success of the charity is down to their recognition of the benefits brought to so many lives through the work of both Danesbury Neurological Centre and Queen Victoria Memorial Hospital, together with the wider health services in the county. 

In turn we take our role in Welwyn life very seriously and there is nothing more central to that life than the annual Welwyn Festival. Running between 14th and 23rd June our shop team will be manning a stall at the Street Market and following the Street Parade on the 22nd where we will have a toy stall at Singlers Marsh. 

This is early warning but don’t miss the Festival – it is always great fun. 

Governed by the Charity Commission the Friends of Danesbury & QVM Hospital is managed by a committed group of Trustees. As trustees they need to be generally well informed about the work of the charity and of the health services we support. We are always keen to hear from anyone interested in the work of the trustees. You can find out more on our website If you would like to speak to us just call our office 01438 840514.
