Friends of St Marys Isle of Wight


It is quite possible that you or a member of your family or friends have already been admitted to St Mary’s Hospital in the past and would like to express your gratitude in a positive and practical way for the care and attention received.

Help us to ensure that in the future the latest equipment and facilities are available to assist the dedicated staff to provide the best care possible for patients.

We have a hospital of which we can be justly proud. How good it would be to be able to say “I helped”.

How could you help?

By fundraising among your community and friends. You can choose what your donation will buy from a Wish List, or you can become a Member of the Friends of St Mary’s Hospital.

There is a form included on our downloads page for this.

Who are we?

We are an official Charitable Body with an elected Board of Trustees and a group of volunteers working together with the NHS Primary Care Trust.

What do we do?

Our wholly-owned subsidiary, Friends of St Mary’s Shop/Café Ltd run the hospital shop, the two coffee shops and the daily Ward Trolleys. Also, we have book sales, collecting boxes for loose change in the Hospital Foyer and collecting tins around the Island.

Why do we do it?

To supplement the excellent service already provided by St Mary’s by financing extra facilities which enhance the lives of patients, staff and visitors alike. In recent years, the Friends have provided much-needed equipment which has contributed to patient well-being, both during their stay in hospital and also in community care.

Since the League of Friends, now the Friends of St Mary’s Hospital, was founded, hundreds of thousands of pounds have been raised. Approximately half a million pounds has been donated from the takings from the shop and café and various bequests since the year 2000.
