Friends of St Thomas’ Hospital Christmas Cards 2012 Launch – Tuesday 9 October 2012

It was a great pleasure to meet with the Friends of St Thomas’ once again on the occasion of their 2012 Christmas Cards Launch and endorse as Mayor all that their immensely important volunteering work means to the thousands of grateful individuals, families and community groups throughout our progressive London Borough south of the river.   Whatever the spread of social networking is able to create or image for the user; the greetings card is still that bond of friendship and love sent the length and breadth of our country and often across continents with welcomed words so good to receive and even more rewarding to send.   Christmas cards maybe a seasonal routine but this anticipated task is made far easier when you know that it carries much more than the written word can ever say because with the Friends of St Thomas’ Hospital; the purchase price will be used in supporting the care and comfort of patients in one of our two truly excellent NHS Hospitals in Lambeth.   This year, the photographic front cover is that of the frozen Naub Gabo fountain, central to the beautifully laid out gardens overlooking the Thames with Parliament and Big Ben in the distance and that same little robin turning up again as in the stunning riverside shot used last year.
