Stroke staff raise over £600 for their unit

19 January 2016

Fundraising

Julie Harman (stroke support worker), Pamela Turnnidge (stroke database coordinator), Emma Wilding (staff nurse) and Fiona Golding (deputy sister) held a charity table sale in the Cardigan wing of the hospital in December and sold handmade crochet and crafts as well as raffled a beautiful hamper. They raised over £600 for their stroke unit.

Julie said: "The main aim was to raise enough funds to purchase communicators for patients with hearing problems and we raised more than we needed.

"Charitable funds are always spent on enhancing the service we can provide here at the hospital.

"Sometimes that means purchasing the latest equipment or refurbishing a ward, but it can also mean funding smaller items such as musical instruments for patients undergoing rehabilitation on our stroke unit."
