Our Chairman, Ais North, is raising money by running 100km!
Ais will be taking part in a 24hr challenge to run the 100km Race to the Stones on 16th July 2016. This will be her second attempt at the challenge and she hopes to complete the course in under 24 hrs. Sponsor her here. The Friends want to help support the staff health and well being by providing items for the break-out areas on wards with things like coffee machines, comfortable seating, televisions, even cheery pictures and plants if allowed. We welcome all ideas and requests. To do this we need at least £5000. The more we raise the more we can do. Your sponsorship of Ais’s challenge will go towards this.
Charing Cross Hospital
Charing Cross was originally a voluntary hospital called the West London Infirmary. It was also an undergraduate teaching hospital. It was founded with only 12 beds by Dr Benjamin Golding in 1818 near the Strand in Charing Cross, in buildings now occupied by Charing Cross police station. In 1827, it changed its name to Charing Cross Hospital and later set up a medical school. It moved to its present location on Fulham Palace Road in west London in 1973.
