Welcome to the League of Friends of Helston Community Hospital website.

We continue to support the staff and patients at the Hospital through this difficult time of the coronavirus and we appreciate the support given to us by the local community.


Due to the Covid situation the Committee feel it unwise to hold an Open Annual General Meeting this year.
Reports from the Chairman and Treasurer will be circulated to members in December.
Chairman Heather Gilbert - 1 December 2021


Helston Community Hospital is a small Community Hospital with 24 beds and holds various Clinics for people in the area.

The main purpose of our League of Friends is to provide funds for equipment and all aspects of comfort and care for the benefit of patients and staff throughout the Hospital.

The League of Friends Committee supports the Hospital by providing funding for equipment to make the patients stay in the Hospital more comfortable. We provide Easter, Christmas cards and presents for the patients. Maintain the Sensory Garden and outside flower beds with the help of the Helston/Lizard Rotary Club and volunteers.

The League receives support from the local Community in the way of legacies, fundraising events, donations and collections.

The League of Friends raises monies by organizing a Fete, Coffee Mornings and fundraising events.
