Absolutely amazing charity, my dad was on J88 for 4 months but sadly passed away on the 14th of May. The little bag of treats, tea & coffee plus the free TV was lovely. I remember my dad looking through the bag to find the mints. You all do an amazing job and I cant thank you enough, such a heartwarming thing to do. Thank

Lovely charity and lovely people! It is true that you never fully appreciate how important a charity like this is until you’re thrown into a horrible situation. A friendly face and a “Hug on a Tray” can make the world of difference, and they’ve definately helped to put a smile on my face at a very difficult time. Thank you all so much.

After our donation box was stolen... don’t let one poor act dampen your spirits ladies, you all do a great job and genuinely make the patients, visitors and the staff have a much better day. Nothing but love.

Long may you continue helping our patients and relatives, you all do a brilliant job. I love it when we get new patients and we tell them they get free TV and goodie bags!

It makes a difference to the patients and their families, some of who spend weeks, sometimes months with us on the wards. Well done ladies and keep up the good work, always a pleasure to see your smiling faces on J88.
