Caernarfon Herald - - YOUR COMMUNITY -

● Ded­i­cated vol­un­teers have raised an im­pres­sive £27,000 to­wards Caernar­fon’s Ys­byty Eryri over the last 18 months. Th­ese funds, do­nated by Ys­byty Eryri’s League of Friends, have been used to pur­chase equip­ment such as a ther­apy soft­ware pack­age, wardrobes, over chair ta­bles and a Grid­pad for the Speech and Lan­guage Ther­apy team. The team of fundrais­ers have been busy ar­rang­ing cof­fee morn­ings and pro­vid­ing a tea trol­ley in the com­mu­nity hos­pi­tal to raise this im­pres­sive amount. Dona­tions are also made to the League of Friends in mem­ory of loved ones. Elaine Hard­man, Ma­tron of Ys­byty Eryri, said: “The League of Friends is a small but ded­i­cated group of vol­un­teers who spend their free time to fundraise for their hos­pi­tal, which is at the heart of their com­mu­nity. With the sup­port from the League of Friends the staff work­ing at Ys­byty Eryri can of­fer pa­tients, their rel­a­tives and friends the very best care. The equip­ment which has been do­nated does bring ad­di­tional fa­cil­i­ties to the pa­tients that the health board would not nec­es­sar­ily be able to sup­port. We are ex­tremely grate­ful to the League of Friends for the sup­port they give to staff and the ser­vices at the hos­pi­tal, and with their help we can of­fer pa­tients the best pos­si­ble care.”
