Committee getting down to weeding and redesigning the Sensory Garden April 2016

Matron Lynda Mchale and Sister Teresa and Dr Ken Whittle thanked the members
of the Helston/Lizard Rotary Club for renovating the benches in the Sensory Garden. Spring 2016

The object of the League is to relieve patients and former patients of the Helston Community Hospital who are sick, convalescent; disabled, handicapped, infirm or in need of financial assistance and, generally to support the charitable work of the Hospital. The League supplements the service by providing facilities, buildings and equipment which may be required for the treatment of such patients.

The League works closely with the Primary Care Trust and the Matron and Staff to make this one of the best Community Hospitals in Cornwall. The League provided the "Jack Johns Suite" which was built onto the hospital for the use of patients families when they need to be with their "loved ones" for long periods of time. It gives them the opportunity to prepare a snack for themselves, shower and just relax for an hour without leaving the hospital. The League is also providing a Conservatory and Sensory Garden at the request of the Matron and Staff. (Click on "Purchases" for more photos
