    Weʼve raised £935 to replace reduced funding and recognise a professional image of nursing

    Funded on Saturday, 23rd September 2017

    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 charity.

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

    Story

    Shropshire Community Health NHS Trust values the nurses it employs as highly skilled, knowledgeable professionals. Recently the Chief Executive and the Chair made a brave decision to refuse a financial donation because they were uncomfortable with the way in which the funds had been raised. The donors had used bizarre, parody images of nurses that were considered to be overly-sexualised, demeaning, and insulting to the profession. The decision has been both welcomed and criticised. Many nurses are pleased to see senior leaders speaking out against this kind of lazy stereotyping and everyday sexism and have voiced their support on social media. If you support the Trust's decision and would like to do something more to thank them, the aim of this JustGiving page is to try to replace the funds the Trust felt it couldn't accept. It is rare to see such a strong position being taken to counter the casual denigration of the profession, and especially in these particular circumstances. Let's replace those funds for this Trust. Do give if you can.

      The fundraising page is now closed. We raised £935 for our cause. Well done to everyone and thank you. There are some processing fees to come off and so we will have in the region of £890 to pass on. I'll let you know exact amounts when it's all cut and dried, hopefull at the end of this week. Thanks again! J

      11% of our target raised in just two hours! Fantastic to see such generous support for the woman who called out facile undermining of nurses.

      This is a worthwhile cause. Well done June. The image of nursing should be something of value.
