The League of Friends changed its name and constitution after receiving a large legacy and, rather than supporting Thornbury Hospital (which no longer exists), we are now reaching out to the community to offer support to any local groups which have health-related/wellbeing needs which can't otherwise be fulfilled.
We will also continue to support the Henderson Rehabilitation Unit at Grace Care Centre on Midland Way.

Our annual Swimarathon has been Thornbury Rotary Club's major fund-raising event for over 20 years.
Funds are raised by sponsored teams of 6 or more people swimming lengths in relay at Thornbury Leisure Centre. We are very grateful to the individual swimmers and teams who unfailingly support this event and also to our local sponsors and advertisers for their donations. The money they give more than covers the cost of running the Swimarathon, ensuring that every penny raised by our swimmers, plus the balance from these donations, is used for the benefit of "good causes".
You can contact the organiser Stuart Hill by email or phone.
