    Weʼve raised £288 to support St Richard's Hospital in Chichester

    West Sussex
    Funded on Friday, 31st December 2021

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Six weeks before the end of 2020 a van hit me as I was crossing a road. I ended up in hospital for almost two weeks, and I'm still recovering.

    You can find more about my accident and my recovery on my blog

    However, it's eight months now, and I'm making progress. That's why I have decided that it’s the best time to express how grateful I’m for all the support I received whilst in hospital after my accident. To thank all the staff at St Richard’s Hospital in Chichester for their compassionate care and support, I’ve decided to raise money for them.

    I’m currently preparing for my challenge – walking around the Isles of Scilly at the end of August. Just a few days before my Birthday! The challenge I’ve chosen to do is a 10-mile walk around the perimeter of St Mary’s island. St Mary’s is the largest and most populous island of the Scilly Isles (GB). Walking the 10 miles will be challenging, but I’m making progress and still have few weeks for preparation. I’m confident that with your support, and in the knowledge that it's for a good cause, I will be able to complete the walk.

    I would like to kindly ask you for a donation that would mean so much to St Richard's Hospital. It will help them to provide care for others, especially in those difficult times of pandemics.

    I’ve therefore teamed up with Friends of Chichester Hospitals, and all donations will go to them. The Friends are proud to be entirely volunteer-led and operated, supporting St Richard’s Hospital and local mental health services. This means that all the money raised will go directly to making a real difference for patients, visitors and staff.

    Thank you so much for your donations and all your support,

      I DID IT! I completed my 10-mile sponsored walk on the Isles of Scilly, actually by the end of the day I (we) walked almost 16 miles. So happy, nine months ago I couldn't walk, now I'm helping those who helped me when I needed it the most. All the money will go to the St Richard's Hospital in Chichester where they took a great care of me after my accident, more here What a perfect way to celebrate my Birthday! Thank you so much for your support and contribution - you can still donate and support the good cause 🙏
