MK Friends Trolley Round

Unfortunately our trolley service is currently suspended until further notice due to restrictions within the hospital. We have launched our online shop with delivery to the wards so patients are still able to purchase items. Go to for further information or to place an order. 

MK Friends run a daily ward trolley service. It is taken round in the morning by volunteers. It goes out 364 days a year, the exception being Christmas Day.

The trolley goes round the wards normally between 8.30 am to 1.00 pm. Time of visit on a ward will vary from day to day. There are over 20 wards and areas to go round so it does take time.

We sell the following items to patients, staff and visitors:

  • Newspapers & Magazines
  • Cold drinks
  • Biscuits
  • Confectionery
  • Toiletries
  • Stationery

Volunteers go round on their own and in pairs and they all find it very rewarding helping and interacting with the patients and staff. If you have ever been in hospital you will know how valuable the service is. 

We are always looking for new volunteers to help. If you would like to help then please contact MK Friends Shop on 01908 995960 or send an email to for further information.
