£150raised of £1,000 target by 6 supporters

Weʼre raising £1,000 to raise money for Wards A4 & Ward A6 at Wythenshawe Hospital as part of the Patient Initiative #EndPJParalysis.

Manchester, UK

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


For many, wearing pyjamas reinforces being sick and can prevent recovery. Studies show that three-in-five immobile, older patients in hospital had no medical reason that required bed rest and doubling the amount of walking while in hospital reduces the length of stay.

Ward A4 & Ward A6 are currently running a 70 Day Patient Initiative called #EndPJParalysis.

Between Monday 18th and Friday 22nd June both Ward A4 and Ward A6 will be hosting various activities such as Volleyball, Seated Cycling, and Hopscotch during the day in order to get our patients more active.

We have aimed to do activities that are sustainable, where we can continue these activities after the week is over.

We have created a Scoring System in order to encourage our patients to take part, with the incentive that if they collectively score over 450 points on each ward over the whole week, then the staff will do the 'Glow in the Park: Manchester Charity Fun Run.' which is being held at Heaton Park to raise money for Royal Manchester Children's Hospital.

Your donations will go towards improving patient care, improving facilities and helping those most in need under our care.
