MP joins friends for a cuppa

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

HILLING­DON Hos­pi­tal’s league of friends had an ex­tra pair of hands in serv­ing tea and cof­fee to pa­tients and staff.

They were joined by Hayes & Har­ling­ton MP John McDon­nell to celebrate vol­un­teers week at the end of June.

The MP pitched in to sup­ply a thirsty crowd and charm the cus­tomers – and was de­scribed as a ‘nat­u­ral’ by the Friends, who have in­vited him to do another shift.

The Friends char­ity has been in ex­is­tence since 1955 (pre-dat­ing the cur­rent hos­pi­tal) and raises funds for pa­tient equip­ment through sales in their shops.

Cur­rently 55 vol­un­teers give up over 4,000 hours of their time each year.
