WRVS Ormskirk Hospital Shop Video Interview with manager Deborah Brown
WRVS Orsmkirk Hospital Shop Interview with manager Deborah Brown
The WRVS (Women's Royal Voluntary Service) is a charity which originated back during the second world war. Today the motto of the WRVS is "Positive about age, positive about life"
Through more than 40,000 volunteers WRVS helps older people all over the country to stay independent at home and active in their community. It is that practical little bit of help that makes all the difference -- whether at home, getting them to where they want to go, bringing people together through social activities or supporting them in hospital or in an emergency.
The WRVS hospital shop in the Ormskirk District General Hospital donated in 2011 £41,000 to the hospital. This donation was made to fund a new heart scanner. The money was raised from the profits made by the hospital shop.
During the video interview Deborah Brown, the shop manager, gives us an insight into the shops activities and those of the WRVS in West Lancashire.
