The League’s new Christmas cards were a huge success and we are delighted to say that they all sold out! A BIG thank you to all of those in Martock and South Petherton who supported us at the various events we attended with our fabulous merchandise.
We recently received this lovely message in appreciation of the Simple Step up that we funded and was featured in our last article:
Dear South Petherton League of Friends,
I am writing to convey our gratitude for the gift of the Simple Up. I cannot express how fantastic this device is, and it has already revolutionised our working practice.
I am confident that this essential piece of kit will be of immense value to our radiography staff and their patients. Indeed as soon as it was delivered I used it for a patient, who rather enjoyed the experience!
With the NHS in such difficult financial circumstances, your generous donation is made even more significant, the simple up will enable us to carry out more x-ray examinations then before, I no longer have to turn patients away who would have been unsafe on the previous step ladder.
It really is an excellent addition to our lovely X-Ray room, and again on behalf of my colleagues, I would like to thank you so very much,
Thank you Abi for confirming the value of this equipment, and thank you to the members of the League whose donations make such gifts possible!
South Petherton’s community came out in force to support the League of Friends’ two fundraising coffee mornings in October. Continue reading
