raised of £15,654 target by 31 supporters

Weʼre raising £15,654 to raise money for a new piece of rehabilitation equipment to benefit all patients who require prolonged ICU care.

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 nonprofit.

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


On the 22nd May 2021 ICU COVID warriors set out to conquer the 3 Peaks In yorkshire.

Fundraising is underway to raise money to buy a Sarah Combilizer by the Pilgrim Hospital Boston Intensive Care Unit (PHB ICU). Fighting COVID-19 for the past year has been a test of endurance, perseverance and teamwork, not just for the staff but patients as well. 10 individuals, 8 staff and 2 husbands, are setting out to conquer the Yorkshire 3 Peaks in a battle to raise money for equipment that will contribute towards improved patient care.

The Sara Combilizer is a a sit-to-stand early mobilisation aid. It is a combined tilt table and stretcher chair, which allows passive transfer of patients out of bed who are at risk of ICU acquired weakness. Early mobilisation improves strength and prevents hospital acquired illnesses. The pandemic saw a lot of our patients staying in for long periods and requiring vigorous rehabilitation after their critical care period. The Sara Combilizer would help to introduce that rehabilitation during critical care treatment. It is currently quoted at £13 045 excluding VAT, making it a grand total of £15,654 to be raised

While we recognise how ambitious this figure is as a target to raise, it is not without hope that we will get the support and donations to raise as much as we can. Please share and donate ☺️

If anyone is interested in participating in small fundraisers or dontaing prizes to be raffled off in aid of helping raise further funds then please contact us to arrange this.

Every small contribution, share and cheer will really be appreciated.
