Thank you for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.
What we’re doing:
On the 6th October 2018 a group of Physiotherapist’s from the London Spinal Cord Injury Centre (LSCIC), at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (RNOH) are taking part in the Welsh 3000’s challenge.
The Welsh 3000’s Challenge requires us to have been at the top of all 15 mountains over 3000ft in Wales, within the space of 24 hours. Without using any form of transport. The length of the walk is about 24 miles, but the walks to the start point, and down from the finish point, can take it to over 30 miles.
Why we’re doing it:
We are all therapists who work, or have worked, in the London Spinal Cord Injury Centre. We have been inspired by the daily challenges our patients go through during and after their rehabilitation. It is for this reason, we would like to raise some money to enable the creation of a beautiful wheelchair accessible garden.
Horatio’s Garden is a charity that creates and lovingly cares for beautiful accessible gardens in NHS spinal injury centres. Horatio’s Gardens provide patients with somewhere to find much-needed solace, in an oasis of planting, even if on bed rest. Patients can take part in gentle rehabilitation activities in the gardens, organised by the charity, including garden therapy, art therapy and music events.
The garden design will include garden rooms as places for patients to use the space, whatever the weather. It will be a fully accessible, beautiful space, enabling patients to have time surrounded by natural elements.
We would be 100% grateful for any contributions that you are able to make, whilst we clamber our way up 15 mountains. We are really looking forward to carrying out this challenge, and raising as much as we can, for a cause that we are so excited about. Love Caley, Frankie, Joe, Selina, Rachel, Michaela and Lorraine xx
