The Shop & Hobby Trollies
The Shop Trolley is a very popular service and takes a little bit of the Shop to the bedside every weekday morning and four afternoons a week. It sells confectionery, soft drinks, magazines, newspapers and small gifts as well as a lot of cheer which is always appreciated.
The Hobby Trolley is taken round the wards four times a week and occasionally on a Saturday. Despite living in the Digital Age, patients derive much pleasure from jigsaws, puzzle books and playing card which can relieve the tedium for patients. It also gives volunteers the opportunity to meet and interact with patients and their visitors.
