Raising money for your local hospital
Nearly 4 million pounds raised, and rising thanks to you!
Epsom Medical Equipment Fund (EMEF) formed in 1979 (as Epsom Endoscopy Fund, later renamed) has raised close to £4 million to purchase items for Epsom General Hospital (EGH), ranging from a £230,000 CT scanner to a £17 specially shaped pillow.
Helped by a small band of volunteers, the Fund was, and still is run by local woman, Bess Harding MBE, pictured above with HRH Princess Alexandra, who visited Epsom General Hospital to open the new Urology Unit. HRH was interested in hearing how Bess got her MBE. Click here to view our brochure.
So many ways to give...
Main fundraising is via a series of car boot sales, held in the hospital staff car park in Dorking Road, Epsom KT18 7EG, between March and October. Bess also regularly tours the hospital selling raffle tickets. With legacies, cash donations (often from grateful relatives of patients), the Fund attracts a total of some £80,000 a year, all of which is spent on equipment, solely for use at Epsom General Hospital.
Charity Antiques Valuation Roadshow by Newland Antiques at The Station Inn, Stoneleigh Broadway, Stoneleigh on Thursday 19th September from 10 am to 3pm.
You will have the opportunity of discussing your item with a valuer and may be offered the chance to sell it for immediate cash. Please bring your valuables along and you may be delighted by the cash offer. It is worth noting that gold at the moment is at an all time high so worth bringing along any items of golf or broken jewellery.
Thanks to your generous contributions we have been able to continue our programme of buying much needed items of equipment to help our medical professionals at Epsom General Hospital. Everything we purchase makes a difference to people's lives. We couldn't do it without you all.
