League of Friends of the Royal Berkshire Hospital: Supporting the RBH through volunteers and donations

League of Friends of the Royal Berkshire Hospital

Welcome to the League of Friends Website



The League of Friends Summer Fete for 2020 has been cancelled due to the current Covid 19 restrictions.

We hope to start planning for 2021 soon.

League of Friends dates for Caversham Court Gardens Tea Kiosk  have been suspended until Covid 19 restrictions have been eased sufficiently for us to reopen.

The retail units in RBH are still open but with reduced hours.

Maternity shop 9am - 3.30pm Mon - Fri and Friends Coffee House 7.30am - 3pm Mon - Fri

Thank you for your understanding
