Nurses climb Snowdon to fund children’s smiles
A group of children’s ward staff from Ormskirk hospital are taking on the challenge of climbing Snowdon on 1 September to raise money for their department.
Children’s nurse and organiser Jess Healy said:
“Last year we did a charity walk to raise money to revamp our playroom. We had some amazing painters create a jungle-themed mural and we want to invite them back to paint some other areas. We will also use the money to go towards resources and equipment to make a visit to A&E as pleasant as possible for our young patients.
“We are so passionate about and proud of the job we do, that we want our department to be the best it can be.
“So next month we will climb Snowdon, using all our teamwork skills which help us through many difficult situations. We will navigate to the top and back down (no trains allowed)! Support, care, encouragement, resilience and a lot of laughter will make it a success we are sure.”
Trust Chief Executive Trish Armstrong-Child said:
“What a fantastic team we have in our children’s A&E. They are truly an inspirational bunch and I have no doubt that they will easily succeed and raise much needed funds for the department along the way.”
