Welcome to the

Hawkhurst League of Friends


A word from our Chairman


Welcome to the Hawkhurst Community Hospital League of Friends. The LoF was formed in 1967 to support the work and development of the services provided at the Hospital. Over the years we have provided not only many hundreds of thousands of pounds for building works, but also day to day comforts like newspapers and televisions which the NHS does not provide.

We run a Charity Shop in the Village to raise funds and our objectives include the health of the wider community where we currently support a day-centre for those with dementia.

The future of the NHS is, in part, for more care in the home and the community and we expect that that is how our future effort is likely to develop while continuing to support the Hospital.

Peter Hoole
