Tarporley War Memorial Hospital have launched their campaign, to raise the much-needed funds to continue providing it’s outstanding service to Tarporley and the surrounding communities.

The launch took place on Thursday, October 13 at the home of Phil and Alexis Redmond, who kindly hosted the event on behalf of the hospital.

We have launched a campaign to ensure that it is still here in another 100 years

“The hospital turns 100 in 2019, so we have launched a campaign to ensure that it is still here in another 100 years” explained Karin Daelemans, Hospital Director, Tarporley War Memorial Hospital.

The hospital first opened its doors in 1919, as a lasting memory to those who died in service during the First World War. Tarporley War Memorial Hospital offered medical services that were to free of charge to the residents of Tarporley and its ‘townships’, a concept relatively unheard of before the introduction of a National Health Service.

It was the residents’ responsibility to contribute what they could each year to fund the hospital service.

Hospital director continued: “We have really come a full circle, as we once again are looking to our local community to support us, as they did nearly 100 years ago”

The evening saw Phil and Alexis Redmond, pledge their support for the hospital’s campaign, followed by inspiring speeches from hospital matron, Claire Teasdale, and from Karin Daelemans.

It costs £2,400 each day to keep the hospital open and to continue providing it’s excellent care to the community.
