The Association of Friends of All Hallows Hospital

Supporting All Hallows Healthcare Trust

The Association of Friends of All Hallows Hospital Supporting All Hallows Healthcare Trust was formed to raise funds and provide donations to the Trust to enhance the fabric of the building and for equipment to enhance the patients stay. Although the Trust has contractual arrangements with the surrounding healthcare providers, it is independant and has to purchase all its own equipment. To raise funds for this the Trust relies heavily on the generosity of the supporters and the Friends organise fund raising events

Over the years the Friends have raised significant funds. The largest legacy was used to build the Day Treatment and Therapy Centre.

The Friends of All Hallows Hospital have some 88 members with a committee of 18, five of which are executive members, the Town Reeve of Bungay as President during his or her term of office and founder member Harald Pulford as Honorary Life President.

Fundraising Events

The Friends hold several events throughout each year and also have a stall at other events

Other events organised by the Friends could be coffee mornings, brunches, lunches, suppers, antique appraisals, fashion shows, quiz nights, garden question times, concerts, stalls at the Bungay street fairs, cookery demonstrations and Saint’s day dances.

Funds are also received from subscriptions, legacies, donations by local clubs and businesses, in remembrance of patients nursed in the Hospital and in lieu of flowers at funerals.

We welcome new members.

The Friends have eight meetings a year plus an Annual General Meeting in May and an annual Newsletter is issued.  The AGM can be a time for change. The executive members, if willing to stand again, have to be re-elected and new names for the general committee may be put forward, provided of course there have been some resignations. Alternatively the previous year’s committee can be re-elected. These meetings are held in the Hospital.
