Ward B1 named at charity champions

20 Nov 2012 09:49:45


Rotherham Hospital Charity have named B1 (the Medical Admissions Unit) as their fundraising champions after they raised over £5000 for the charity over the past two years. As a thank you, Charity Development Officer, Tracy Williams, presented B1 with 16 tickets to the Peter Pan pantomime taking place at Rotherham Civic Theatre this Christmas, after receiving the complimentary tickets from Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council (RMBC). 

Recently B1 raised an impressive £2435 through staff nurse Russell Burrows’ three Peaks Challenge, a downhill mountain bike ride challenge by pharmacist technician Darren Wilson and friends from his cycling club and It’s a Knockout where a team from B1 competed against other teams from the Trust as the B1 Hustlers in the event in June. The money was split between Rotherham Hospital Charity and Sheffield Area Kidney Association (SAKA) and was donated in memory of Nigel Smith, the late husband of a member of staff. 

Suzie McDonald, B1 Deputy Ward Manager said, “We are very proud of everyone who has contributed to our fundraising and helped raise money for both Rotherham Hospital Charity and SAKA. As we are the first ward that most patients see it is good to be able to raise awareness of other areas at the Trust, such as the charity. Getting involved in fundraising events also makes work even more enjoyable and helps with team building.” 

B1 will give some of the tickets to their staff and will raffle the rest to raise more money for the charity.
