A tea bar at Northwick Park Hospital has managed to donate an astonishing £9,000 to the hospital after business boomed since their reopening.
Pulse Finders tea bar sell the cheapest cup of tea in the trust which, in these times of austerity, should see punters flock back to grab another cuppa at Northwick Park Hopsital.
The bar reopened for business after a two-year absence and volunteers haven’t wasted time by donating £9,000 for a new bladder scanner for Crick and Darwin wards at the hospital based in Harrow.
“We started in the 90s and inherited a couple of bags of crisps and some biscuits left by the previous person,” says Leslie Gotts, a former publican and one of its longest serving members.
“The majority of us were treated at the hospital for heart conditions and just wanted to give something back. I’ve got a lot out of volunteering. It’s nice to do your bit and help other less fortunate than yourselves.”
The bar, located opposite physiotherapy reception, and is described as ‘reassuringly old school’ and who could argue with tea and coffee under a pound and guilty pleasures like Bovril, Cheesy Wotsits and Maltesers on offer.
Pulse Finders had to shut up shop during the pandemic and is now looking for new volunteers who might be interested in working a four- hour shift once a week and helping the community.
