Open day success

Stanmore open day

A huge thank you to everyone who came to our open day last Saturday. Visitors were given the chance to see behind the scenes at the nation's leading orthopaedic hospital and had plenty of hands-on activities and exhibits to get involved with. The lucky attendees had a close-up look at some of latest research that will redefine orthopaedic medicine in the coming years.

Randall says hello!

Randall bear

We'd like to introduce you to the newest (and cuddliest) member of The RNOH Charity, Randall. Randall is our brand new teddy bear, available from the Outpatients Shop or the Fundraising and Development office. He makes a lovely present and a great hospital buddy for anyone feeling a bit anxious about their stay.

If you'd like to take home your very own Randall, pop in to the RNOH Outpatients shop or call us on 020 8909 5362 so we can send one out to you. All the money raised from the sale of Randall will go towards our Redevelopment Appeal.

Barbara Bus Fund Trustee Vacancy

Barbara Bus specially adapted vehicles

The Barbara Bus Fund is a charity that provides specially adapted vehicles for the use of people who are wheelchair users and cannot access conventional transport.

Due to the imminent retirement of one of the trustees, the Fund is looking to recruit a suitable successor to join the committee.  The committee holds its meetings at Stanmore, in the evenings, usually every six to eight weeks.  The role of the trustees is mainly strategic, with the day to day running of the Fund being managed by the office staff. However, there may be some occasions when trustees attend during the day if they can to assist and support the Fund.
