Hospital League of Friends urgently needs volunteers for its two fundraising stores in the town

Volunteers are urgently needed to help in Seaton and District Hospital League of Friends’ charity shops.

The two stores in the resort raise vital funds for the local community hospital and the Seaton Friends Hospiscare@Home service.

Manager Lycia Moore said: “Seaton Hospital is still a very busy place, with a huge amount of outpatient services and a busy physiotherapy department, which the league continues to support.

“The League also fundraises for Seaton Friends Hospiscare@Home service which it completely funds at a cost of £5,000 per week.

League volunteer Iris Maxam said: “Our shops are very busy, but I get a lot of enjoyment from working there. The League also has a social side, with coffee mornings and lunches. For me personally, I have made some very good friends and it is my way of giving something back to our local community.”
