Let's Hit Cancer for Six! this year at Gloucestershire Cricket's Brewin Dolphin Cheltenham Cricket Festival... Huge thank you for all text donations so far - we're close to hitting a century!

Our catering team were joined by the Mayor of Gloucester and our new Chief Executive Deborah Lee today to formally unveil our new farm shop and to sample some new produce at Foster’s Restaurant at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital. The shop will sell locally-produced foods and beverages as well as cakes, cookies, pies and tarts, as Food & Beverage Manager Simon Aquilina explains: “We live in a part of the country that is full of small, local sellers and some amazing produce and we believe the shop will help hospital staff and visitors to buy local, seasonal produce on a daily basis”.
