Thank you to November's fundraisers
Thank you to our wonderful fundraisers for November. As always you are incredible and we couldn't continue enhancing the care to patients and families at West Suffolk Hospital without you.
Ashley Byford took to the skies and completed a skydive for the charity. Ashley is currently at university studying speech and language therapy so it seems only apt to donate the money to our department.
My WiSH Charity's Special Events Committee held their second quiz and raised money for our Love Your Nodes campaign. Thank you to everyone who took part, a great night was had and Debbie's Angels from West Suffolk Hospital's purchasing department were the winners.
Roger Harnor held an evening of music with American acoustic guitarist Brooks Williams. The evening raised over £1200 for the Macmillan Unit. Thank you Roger for your continued support.
The Bury St Edmunds Film Society held a quiz night at The Hunter club supporting our Love Your Nodes campaign. Thank you to all their members for supporting My WiSH Charity once again.
The Mildenhall Masonic Chapter 6292 visited the Rainbow Ward with a lovely donation of £1000. The money was raised at a garden party and auction and will be used to buy new toys for the ward.
Leah Morris from the Royal Mail sorting office in Skyliner Way in Bury has been a wonderful fundraiser and held a rounders match and also a hotdog day and raised over £500 for our bereavement suite.
The Bury Saturday and Sunday Football League popped along to the Rainbow Ward with their supporters Frames Conservatories Direct to donate £1000 for the unit. The money was raised at their annual charity shield match.
St Edmundsbaby donated £200 to the labour suites at the annual Maternity Services Liasion Committee AGM this year. This money will be used to help refurbish the suites, a big project but one that we look forward to seeing completed in the future.
Nikos Savvas completed his first marathon. It was quite a challenge but he did it and raised money to help our paediatric day surgery patients.
St Edmunds Trust donated a fantastic £7000 grant to our Love Your Nodes campaign to help us purchase a Sentimag machine for the breast cancer unit.
Pam Epson opened her gardens for us over the spring and summer and raised enough money to purchase a Sarastedy for ward G8. Having been a patient on the ward she knew how useful this piece of equipment was and, as the ward only had one, she decided to raise money to purchase a second.
