Story

#comeonDonna

Our overall total is now in excess of £107K, so we've broken the £100K barrier and £200K is in our sights...

My dear wife Donna has been in a critical condition at St Richard's Hospital, fighting Covid -19 for a number of weeks now. The team in the Intensive Care Unit are doing everything they can to try and make her better. In return I decided to try to make their lives as easy as possible and to help them help others in my situation.

Latest fundraising event...

Tonight Friday 29th May Mark Farrow and Mark Carter are doing a 160km bike ride from Winchester to Eastbourne in support of Operation #comeonDonna.This will be along the South Downs Way arriving in Eastbourne tomorrow morning. I and the ComeOnDonnaMobile will be supporting them along the way. See our dedicated Facebook page ComeOnDonnaFB for details. Please support them by donating here. Thanks guys for doing this and thank you all for your donations!

Friday 29th May and day 70 - yes that's 10 weeks - in ITU for Donna...

So we broke the £100K barrier. £200K here we come. Thank you to each and everyone of you. We have a few remaining tickets for our fundraising lottery for a Goodwood Golf Membership. For details see the Update posts below.

And here is a message from Donna herself...

Today’s lunch and drink. Thanks EVERYONE for your kind words of comfort and support. I can’t reply to everyone but I’m reading and loving the messages.

At the start I raised in excess of £30000. This included coffee machines donated by De'Longhi, 1000s of hand sanitisers donated by Zidac and lots of products donated by local companies to put into Goodie Bags for the staff at St Richard's including boxes of tea, deodorant, linen bags to take their scrubs home to wash, hand sanitisers, hand creams.... the list goes on.

The project snowballed and as well as making distributions to St Richard's I've also made donations to a number of hospices, care homes, ambulance stations, GP surgeries & schools. See the updates below for details.

The hospital has now asked me to help develop an holistic service to support Covid-19 staff, patients and their families. Currently there is no formal support to help guide all those involved through the emotional, practical and financial stresses and strains associated with this illness.

To this end, the #comeonDonna Campaign is now focusing on raising money for such a service at St Richard's Hospital ITU. With a view to this holistic service being expanded to all ITUs across the country to support health professionals, patients and their families fighting and recovering from Covid-19.

There are 286 ITUs in the country, 245 of which have more than one patient with Covid-19. There are currently 2403 people in the same situation as Donna.

If that affects 10 people in each family, that's 24,000. Plus if there's 100 doctors and nurses in each ITU that's 28,000, so in total more than 50,000 people are impacted directly.

Hence why we are trying to raise £200,000 to help. Please donate now.

Friends and Family have helped me to get this far, now I am putting it out to the greater community to see how much we can raise for this amazing hospital, its extraordinary staff and my wonderful wife.

There are many ways you can get involved. The easiest and quickest way is by donating here. You can hold your own fund raising event or offer your services. Please see our dedicated website ComeOnDonna for more details

Help me, to help the hospital so they can help my wife.

Thank you
