Centenary Celebrations

Our Centenary Year!

So much has happened since the Hospital was first opened in 1921 and you can find out more about the history here.  2021 marks the Centenary of Rye Hospital and we will be celebrating this milestone with a series of events organised by our Friends and Fundraising Committees.  One of our Board members, Jo Kirkham, will be preparing an exhibition displaying the history of the Hospital which can be viewed at one of our Open Days in September.

 

Our Centenary events will be a mixture of social, celebratory and fundraising.  We have set ourselves the target of raising the remaining £15,000 needed to purchase an Echo Machine so we can provide a diagnostic service for the benefit of our local and wider community.  We have already received a number of kind donations so if you would like to contribute, please visit the How to donate area of our Friends page.  Our achieved fundraising figure is regularly updated on our homepage.

 

Our calendar of events is available here. 

 

Our Centenary Celebrations will culminate in an event planned for Friday 19 November when we will hold a Celebratory Supper followed by the drawing of our Centenary Raffle and concluding with an Auction of inspiring items.  We would like to say a huge thank you to our wonderful local businesses who have donated the following raffle prizes:
