Weʼre raising £500 to enable gynae/oncology nurses at University Hospital of Wales to attend training and research conferences linked to their specialisms.
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.
As you probably know, in May 2010 I had major gynaecology surgery at Llandough Hospital and was operated on by Consultant Mr Robert Howells, Mr Ken Lim and their team and afterwards was cared for so well by the doctors, nurses and staff on Delyth Ward. They were all absolutely amazing with me.
The gynaecology/oncology team have now moved to the University Hospital of Wales (UHW) treating many women from across south Wales. I promised Mr Howells I would raise money for the department and since 2010 have raised small amounts where I can and so far the grand total is £2,200, often just asking friends and family for a £1 coin! In addition I also collect toiletries several times a year which are given to women who are admitted in an emergency to Ward C1 at UHW. I have also helped to make the relatives/quiet room look a little more homely in the consultants clinic at UHW with the generous support of local stores.
My work colleague Kimberley Richards has kindly offered to run the Cardiff half marathon, which will be her first on October 7th 2018. Kim and I would love to raise £500 for the amazing gynae/oncology team. Please donate whatever you can (£1 is great) as they desperately need every penny which they will use on additional training for nurses to bring skills and research back to the ward and clinic at University Hospital of Wales. Please help us reach our target! Thank you!
