As the dream of a new hospital in the heart of Cranleigh is now just a distant memory, I decided to set up a campaign group to try and get a minor injury clinic and other facilities back in to Cranleigh Village Hospital.
With the help of many others we have gained so much support and generated so much interest in this campaign, I certainly could not have started this campaign without them all.
We were promised new fully functioning hospital back in the village but now this is not likely to happen so the next best thing is to try and get our existing hospital back to something like it used to be.
This campaign started because of one person, my mum who sadly passed away last year. I was writing her eulogy when I remembered all the volunteer work she had done especially at the hospital. This got me me thinking about what had happened about all the money that was raised for a new hospital?
I soon found out that the new hospital was never going to happen so decided to raise awareness through social media to the fact we need a minor injury clinic back in Cranleigh. It soon got the attention of so many people who had given money and staged fundraising events for a new hospital that is not ever going to be built. We now have well over 2000 signatures on our petition, if you see one of our petitions in local shops please help us by adding your signature.
This whole campaign is not about me or the people that have done so much to help, it’s about doing something that will benefit the whole community.
If you would like to donate money knowing it goes directly to the Village Hospital then please donate it to the League Of Friends. They have recently raised funds for the new X-ray department which is a fantastic asset to the community. Without all their hard work and fundraising I doubt that the we would still have a Village hospital.
