Clifton Hospital has celebrated it’s 30th birthday with a special party.

Staff, visitors, patients and guests joined in the fun, which included a tombola, raffle, cake stall, DJ and a collection of vintage photos taken over the past 30 years.

“It was lovely to see some many guests including former staff who came to show their support.

“We also raised more than £350 which will go towards patient care.

“Thanks to everyone who came along and all those who support this fantastic community hospital.

“Here’s to the next 30 years.”
