Nurses’ trek aims to raise cash for A&E

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Student Life -

ATEAM of nurses from the Chil­dren’s A&E at Orm­skirk Hospi­tal are set to climb Mount Snow­don to raise money for the depart­ment.

The climb was ini­tially sched­uled to take place in June, but had to be can­celled due to the Covid-19 pan­demic, and has now been re­ar­ranged to take place on Tues­day, Septem­ber 1.

The team from the hospi­tal in Orm­skirk, Lan­cashire, are tak­ing on the chal­lenge fol­low­ing a suc­cess­ful fundrais­ing mis­sion last year which saw them raise enough money to re­vamp the chil­dren’s play­room at the hospi­tal.

This year, money raised from the climb will be put to­wards pur­chas­ing new re­sources and equip­ment to cre­ate a more wel­com­ing at­mos­phere for vis­it­ing pa­tients.

Staff Nurse Jessica Healy said: “Our job role re­quires us to work as a team through some dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tions but now we will use all of our skills to nav­i­gate to the top and back down (no trains al­lowed).

“The Chil­dren’s Unit at Orm­skirk strives to pro­vide the high­est pos­si­ble stan­dard of care to our pa­tients.

“We care about the pa­tient’s jour­ney and en­sur­ing chil­dren and young peo­ple who are in hospi­tal are as com­fort­able as pos­si­ble. We be­lieve strongly in holis­tic care and pro­vid­ing this for chil­dren and young peo­ple and their fam­i­lies.”

The team is ask­ing for do­na­tions ahead of the climb. If you would like to make a do­na­tion, visit the team’s Just­Giv­ing page: www.just­giv­ing.com/fundrais­ing/orm­skirk­pae­di­atric aande?ut­m_­cam­paign
