Hospi­tal team tak­ing gi­ant strides for char­ity

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

A TEAM from Mac­cles­field Hospi­tal is hop­ing to dance their way around a half marathon for char­ity.

Doc­tors Marta Ba­bores, Sri­ram Iyer, Joanna Gal­lagher and Micayla Telfer are run­ning the Rock n’ Roll Liver­pool Half Marathon on Sun­day, May 29.

They will be joined by col­leagues from the East Cheshire NHS Trust, with su­per-fit nurse Rachel Fal­coner will be run­ning the full marathon.

The chal­lenge has been set in aid of the trust’s char­ity ECHO, with run­ners hop­ing to raise funds for res­pi­ra­tory equip­ment for Mac­cles­field Hospi­tal’s Ward 4.

Fiona Doorey, ECHO’s fundrais­ing man­ager, said: “It’s great that our ded­i­cated doc­tors, con­sul­tants, nurses and non-clin­i­cal col­leagues are sup­port­ing our pa­tients out­side of work­ing hours by rais­ing funds for new equip­ment.

“While some mem­bers of the group are keen run­ners, oth­ers have never done a half marathon be­fore so it will be even more of an achieve­ment.”
