Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I am coming to the end of my first year studying to be a mental health nurse and I have been lucky enough to be chosen at take part in the Mount Cavell challenge this year in Canada which is funded by the trust! I will be one of 100 who are taking part in the challenge which includes climbing the 3,363m Mount Edith Cavell as well as white water rafting, Glacier walking, rock climbing and lots of other fun!
In return for this opportunity I would like to raise £2,000 for the charity, which supports nurses in time of need....
Any help is much appreciated :)
Background on Edith Cavell.....
Edith Cavell was a nurse during the first world war in Belgium who devotedly nursed injured soldiers regardless of which side they were from but was sentenced to death for helping 200 allied soldiers escape. In response to her death, public appeals were started and money was raised to help the other nurses who were both mentally and physically shattered.
Today, the Nurses Cavell Trust (Previously Nurses aid) honors her spirit and the actions of the public by continuing to raise money to help health professionals who need some TLC themselves. They are trying to raise 3 Million pounds by 2015 as part of their centenary appeal.
