The money raised each year goes to towards helping the charity fund their activities across the hospital.

Throughout last year, the Stars Appeal Bookshop raised a record breaking £46,439. 

It's up by nearly £2,500 from 2018 with all the proceeds going into the charity's general fund.

That pays for activities and services over and above what the NHS can provide, such as the WiFi right around the hospital, the Chaplaincy Service, and ArtCare projects on the wards amongst other things.

A team of volunteers run the bookshop at the main entrance of the hospital. 

They sell:

  • Books
  • Jigsaw puzzles
  • DVDs
  • Stars Appeal merchandise
