Mary Berry opening the Friends of the RUH Coffee Shop 2014

We held the grand opening on Saturday 11th October 2014 and the Friends Coffee Shop was officially opened by the famous Mary Berry, whose mother was the founding chairman of the League of Friends of the RUH nearly 60 years ago.

Mary said how proud she was of the work being done here and how her mother was ‘spoilt rotten’ whilst she was a patient at the RUH. She said ‘I have thoroughly enjoyed today and it is quite amazing what has happened to the RUH since I was last here and so much is done by the volunteers that’s quite amazing in so many ways. Many years ago I had polio and I was in the orthopaedic hospital, and things were very different – we didn’t have beautiful gardens.’

The new Coffee shop offers a relaxing environment for patients, visitors and staff. We are sure it will raise much need funds to pay for patient amenities across the hospital.

Whether you are a member of staff or visitor to the hospital, you can call ext. 4184 or 01225 824184 before 11am to pre-order your lunch ready for you to collect from the Coffee shop, saving you time.
