The League of Friends of Noble's Hospital

All About Us...

It is probable that at some time in your life, you, or a member of your family, will need the care and expertise of Noble‘s Hospital. We all appreciate the skill of our Doctors and Nurses, but did you realise that extra facilities and comforts for those who are undergoing treatment are provided by a charitable organisation known as the League of Friends?

Founded in 1951, the Friends receive requests from the staff on a regular monthly basis to provide items which are needed and this can be anything from emergency courtesy packs to special Items of equipment beyond the resources of Hospital finances.

Our outgoings over the past ten years alone have been In excess of £1,000,000.

We are a Manx registered company (no. 125913C) limited by guarantee. Charity No. 1079.

How are we financed?

We rely on the unbounded generosity and the support of the general public.  We are very grateful to the continued support of the Scheinberg family who support us generally and in relation to the purchase of specific items of expensive equipment. 

Money comes to us in the form of donations or legacies, and over the years has been invested wisely to ensure a steady income. With ever rising costs and extra requests for help, however, we need to
maintain the high standards we have set.
