Marking our 40+
years of helping the hospital
THE League of Friends celebrated 40 years of
fund raising in 2013. To mark the anniversary we gave a teddy
bear and a keepsake box to all babies born in Leighton Hospital on May 15
and June 12. Those dates are the opening of the shop in 1983 and the launch
of the League of Friends in 1973.
On May 15, five boys and three
girls received teddies and three girls were the recipients on June 12.
We have a similar gift for babies
The teddies, seen here with a
midwife, were presented in pink or blue bags and had neck bows, nose, ears and
paws to match.
n The League has run the
hospital shop for 35 years and moved into new premises in
the Main Entrance in 2014. To mark the milestone we had a promotion in the
previous hospital shop behind the reception desk in
the Main Entrance. We gave a bottle of still spring water free
with every sandwich bought between May 15 and June 12. This went well
with sandwiches "flying off the shelf".
