Our Purpose

The Torbay Hospital League of Friends was set up in 1954 to provide amenities and services to support Torbay Hospital.

Over the years it has become one of the leading Leagues in the country providing many gifts - large and small - amounting to millions of pounds.
(see Gifts so far)

As well as its fundraising activities the League also provides;

A Coffee Shop and drinks facilities in the Outpatients Department and other waiting areas throughout the Hospital.

The Linen League where volunteers meet weekly to make special articles for wards and departments and Voluntary Guides for patients visiting the various clinics.

The League is able to enhance what the Trust provides, by purchasing 'extras' to provide the most advanced methods of treatment, for benefit of local people and staff of the hospital.

It's members help the Hospital by

  • Supporting its work
  • Recruiting volunteers
  • Maintaining a relationship with the volunteers
  • Creating a link between the Hospital and the community it serves, and
  • The provision of funds to supplement its resources


If you would like to become a volunteer helping in our coffee shop or guiding service, please contact June or Pat, volunteer organisers at the League of Friends office on level 2 opposite main reception.
