Events

The League has given over £2 million over the last few years, to benefit many areas of Musgrove: A&E, new surgical block, Bastable Lodge (short-stay bungalow for relatives of acute patients), Cardiology, Maternity, Children, Urology, Opthalmic Department; as well as funding several types of scanner, outside play equipment and even a small road sweeper to improve the environment for everyone.

None of this would be possible without the generosity of local people who donate, attend events and above all, leave generous legacies. Our thanks to you all!

If you are holding an event, please let us know so we can help publicise it here.
