MEDIA RELEASE OCTOBER 2019

Friends of the RUH have now become a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO)

From the 1st of October we are delighted to announce that the Friends of the RUH have now become a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO). Our Official name is Friends of the Royal United Hospitals and we will still be known as the Friends of the RUH, charity number 1176686. You can find out more about what a CIO is on the charity commission website www.gov.uk/government/organisations/charity-commission. Whilst this change has been the result of lots of work behind the scenes, what won’t change is our continued support for the patients with comforts and amenities and the provision of over 280 valued volunteers throughout the trust.
