Our Charity

What We Do

You will see our trolley volunteers around the hospital every day of the year except Christmas Day.  Two trolleys go round the hospital twice a day with newspapers, magazines, sweets, crisps and drinks, in the morning at 8.30 and in the afternoon at 2.00pm.

We also run the hospital Shop, recently located to South Wing 1.  The Shop is open Monday – Friday 8.30am  – 4.00pm and weekends from 2.00 – 5.00pm.  It sells a wide range of items including Newspapers, Magazines, Stationery, Books, Stamps, Toiletries, Soft Toys, as well as Confectionery, Hot and Cold Drinks, Sandwiches, Snacks, Cakes and Biscuits.

Want to Join?

Anyone who wants to support the work of the hospital can join the Friends for just £5 per year. If you or a loved one has been cared for at Dorset County Hospital it is a good way of giving something back, whether you are 16 or 80. We will send you an annual newsletter which will update you on the activities of the Friends.
