The Friends of the RUH provide amenities and comforts for patients and relatives which could not otherwise be provided by the NHS.

This includes having volunteers across the hospital, fundraising and a coffee shop and a shop within the hospital which are open 7 days a week.

“We have been working in partnership with Duncan and The Leaping Squirrel snack company since May 2013. We look forward to his regular quarterly visits to our office with a donation cheque. This helps us continue to provide amenities and volunteers to support patients and their relatives during time spent at the RUH. Duncan runs his business in a friendly, dedicated and reliable way and we would have no hesitation in recommending him to supply snacks to your workplace. We look forward to a long and prosperous working relationship with The Leaping Squirrel Snack Company."
