Our members are referred to as the Friends and we pride ourselves on being a friendly organisation.

Our volunteers are all automatically members of FOYH, but some volunteers want to support their charity further, by paying an annual subscription.

For those unable to volunteer, paying an annual membership subscription is often the best way to give us their support.

You will receive FOYH newsletters and invitations to our social and fundraising events, as well as to our Annual General Meeting where you will have the right to vote. Becoming a member is a good way to keep in touch with how the local community is supporting the hospital. After you have joined, how much you get involved in shaping the direction of FOYH is entirely up to you.
