Well, the blue coin box in the shop at WHH has collected during 2014 a massive:


Thank you for your generosity to staff, visitors, patients and volunteers. Every penny counts…and every penny gets spent on buying new equipment for WHH.

Thank you also to SIMMONDS JEWELLERS in Ashford, who have had a coin box in their shop for years. Last year their customers have given a huge £143. 57. So thank you if you shop with Simmonds and thank you to Simmonds for their support.

If you know of a shop that would be happy to have a small coin box on their counter for us, please get in touch to Jill on 07854 033987 or by email on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Calling All Volunteers!

We need new Volunteers in the Friends/WHH Shop urgently!

We are particularly looking for people to fill a new vacant regular slot of the 4pm to 7pm Thursday shift. It would suit two friends or a couple - although single Volunteers please apply and you might make a new friend! You will receive full training but it is a fun and social way to spend a few hours helping raise money for the William Harvey Hospital.

Additionally we are looking for a bank of ad-hoc staff - ones we can call on for sickness and holiday cover.

If you are interested in Volunteering in the WHH Shop, please contact Darren in the WHH Shop on 01233 633331 or pop in to the shop and speak to the staff and pick up a Volunteer Pack.
