Charity Matters newsletter Summer edition

In a busy hospital like ours, there are always more stories of kindness and compassion than we could ever hope to tell.

So many lives are touched each day by the kindness of strangers, and you – our wonderful supporters – are part of the ongoing story of care that unfolds each day.

I am privileged to be able to share with you the summer edition of Charity Matters, and the difference that your community spirit is making.

Beth Hall, Director
