Friends of The Royal Marsden

The Friends have supported the work of the hospital for many years by providing additional funding, support and amenities. There is one group based at each hospital site: Friends of The Royal Marsden, Chelsea (registered charity no. 222613) and Friends of The Royal Marsden, Surrey (registered charity no. 1120637).

The work undertaken by the Friends is entirely voluntary and includes:

  • providing services which enhance the well-being of patients and staff
  • running refreshment bars and shops
  • providing voluntary non-medical assistance in various wards and departments
  • raising funds for the purchase of medical equipment and provision of amenities for the added comfort of the patients.

The work of the Friends is financed by membership subscriptions, donations and various fundraising activities. These activities are organised by both the Friends and by interested members of the public whose efforts reflect the affection and respect held for The Royal Marsden.
