The Friends of Berkshire Hospitals is a Berkshire charity which supports patients and staff at the RBH and Wokingham Hospital. We raise money for projects to improve the experience for those receiving treatment, visitors, medical staff, and others who work at the hospital.
Working closely with the RBH and Wokingham Hospital, but independent of it, the Friends make sure that donations are focused on making things easier for patients.
With help from staff and volunteers we also run two sites:
We believe in supporting small local businesses in the Coffee House. That’s why we use local coffee supplier Kingdom Coffee, as well as other small businesses for cake and sandwich orders.
Local businesses also support us, with the likes of John Lewis donating knitwear annually to us, and Reading toy shops donating toys to us ready for our Christmas sales – all of which are gratefully accepted.
“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.”
