Earlier this month, the Friends of Pendle group delivered a specialist wheelchair and stacking chairs to Reedyford ward in addition to a brand new water fountain donated by a grateful former patient.

A busy month for donations continued with the kind-hearted staff at Clitheroe-based Paper Cups providing a supply of top quality cups for use in the Friends of Pendle coffee shop, located in the hospital’s main entrance.

Kath Haworth, chairman of the Friends of Pendle Community Hospital, said: “The Friends work tremendously hard to support our local hospital by providing extras that NHS funding does not pay for.
