Annual General Meeting


The aim of the Friends of the Horton is to raise funds to purchase items of equipment, which have been requested by the Doctors and Nursing Staff at the Horton General Hospital in Banbury.
All requests are evaluated, and approved if felt they are justified.
Items purchased throughout 2007/08 include :
  • Ultra low bed (2,995)
  • Patient monitor (4,285)
  • Air conditioning unit in Cardiac Rehab (3,000)
  • Spirometer in Cardiac Assessment (1,300)
  • Mural for the Children's Physio Room (76)
Under consideration is a washing trolley and bowl

Typically, the Friends raise between 10,000 and 20,000, each year, for spending in this way.


Funds are generated in a number of ways
  • Donations and Subscriptions
  • Activities such as car boot sales and street collections
  • The shop and trolley service at the Horton General Hospital
