Our delicious 40th Birthday Cake

The League of Friends of Milton Keynes Hospital was formed in 1979 with a grant of £10,000 from Milton Keynes Council. When the name changed to Friends of Milton Keynes Hospital & Community, it enabled items to be raised for patients out in the community as well as the hospital, such as the Ambulance Service, local GP Practices and outside physiotherapy departments. Over the years we have raised over 3.5 million for the hospital and community.

Our 40th birthday party was attended by over 100 guests including volunteers past and present, the Mayor and Mayoress of Milton Keynes Council, Mayor and Mayoress of Newport Pagnell, local MP Iain Stewart and staff from the hospital including the Trust Chairman Simon Lloyd.

Thank you to Caroline Savill from the shop who baked and decorated our cake. We would like to thank everyone for coming and a big thank you to everyone that has supported us in the last 40 years!
