Jersey's League of Friends cafe and shop refurbished

The refurbishment of the League of Friends cafe and shop at Jersey's General Hospital is complete.

The local charity's premises remains on the ground floor but have been moved to where the florist was.

The shop and cafe have been combined into one area and the layout allows for more storage space for the hospital.

The work was done by the Jersey Construction Council's charity, the Brick Foundation, and the Health and Social Services Department.

The Jersey Construction Council member businesses gave their services for the project free of charge.

The refurbishment was chosen by the Construction Council as one of their community projects, and has been completed in the same week as the Jersey Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre.

Hospital managing director Andrew McLaughlin said: "The League of Friends makes an important contribution both financially and through volunteers to the life of the hospital.

"They have made valuable donations over the years and we appreciate their dedication to their roles."
