The Mayor came along to join our team of collectors at Sainsburys where we raised a fabulous £574 to add to our Diamond Jubilee Appeal. Many thanks to all the staff and customers.

The Mayor, pictured watching one of our youngest donors adding to the collection, has chosen The Friends as his nominated charity and told us that “Rugby is growing fast and better medical facilities are definitely needed. In the present economic situation organisations like The Friends of Hospital of St Cross, run by volunteers, are making a significant contribution to the Health Services in the town.”
