Story

My Dad passed away last year on Fortunewells Ward in Dorset County Hospital, the ward provides care for patients diagnosed with cancer or malignant hematology (blood) diseases. My Dad was lucky enough to have a fan in his room which helped to make him more comfortable. The nurses on the ward told us that they wish they could have a fan for every patient. The Dyson fans the ward needs cost up to £250 and there are fourteen beds on the ward, not everyone can have access to one.

Myself and 5 of my nearest and dearest are looking to raise money by walking 32 miles in one day along the Jurassic coast to purchase as many fans for the ward as possible. Hopefully we will raise enough money to buy a new fan for every bed on the ward. We are looking to raise as much money as possible, and any money people can give would be much appreciated.

    Well, after 34 miles in 17 hours over some truly beautiful Dorset coastline, team Purnells finished at about 23:30 on Sat night. I won't mention blisters or dark times, just the amazing tenacity of the team, who kept each other going throughout. Thank you to all of you who have supported us, we really couldn't have done it without your help! We can buy 9 fans for the ward at the moment (plus 1 donated by Dyson), but there is still time to help us get closer to our target if you haven't had the chance to do it yet. [Update from Nicky]
