Welcome to CCAHF

Cromer Community and Hospital Friends

Cromer Community & Hospital Friends

As a registered charity our aim has always been to purchase equipment and amenities for the local hospitals and relies on support from local people and organisations.

During the last 5 years we have made donations of over £50,000 most notably for the provision of cystoscopy equipment for Cromer & District hospital.

Our aim is to help and provide as many facilities as possible at Cromer, in order to reduce the number of trips made by North Norfolk residents to Norwich.

Bequests remember us in your will

Patients, their friends and relatives often express their appreciation of the good care they receive at Cromer & District Hospital and Benjamin Court. Some do so by specifically remembering the continuing work of the CCAHF when drawing up or amending their wills.

These much appreciated donations have meant we are able to support more requests for funding to provide services which may otherwise be left unsupported.

Should you wish to leave a bequest to CCAHF please contact Michael Ayden.
