Thank you for visiting our profile page on MyDonate.

Friends of Airedale is a charity which provides funds to buy equipment and organises volunteers to help with patient care at Airedale Hospital NHS Trust

Please donate to support our cause.We strive to improve the patient experience whilst they are in hospital, by providing assistance in many areas of the hospital. The Chairman of Friends of Airedale, Michael Yates, says: 'we are not here to take over care of the patient but to work alongside the nursing staff. It is very important for us to assist with the care of patients by providing funds to buy equipment which will help in the recovery of patients.

Over 350 volunteers help in many areas. This includes running the café and shop in Outpatients and the main entrance, the ward trolley service and paper round which also generate funds. Guides help direct patients and visitors. Other volunteers befriend and feed elderly patients and transport patients to and from home. Volunteers say that it is good to be part of the voluntary work in the hospital and to know we can make a difference to the patients experience in hospital.

Charity No: 503652
