The Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool is one of Europe’s biggest and busiest children’s hospitals with treatments ranging from A&E to various Cancers. The WEX Europe team are raising funds over the next 6 months to support the Alder Hey Children’s Hospital Room with a View Challenge.
Through this challenge we will raise funds to enable the delivery of a high-tech distraction system into a specialist treatment room. This distraction system creates an immersive experience that calms a child undergoing treatment by projecting videos and sounds onto the walls of the treatment room (to see more click here: ttps://vimeo.com/272770606 .)
To raise funds, we are sending 8 of our team members on their own challenge - climbing the 3 highest peaks in England, Scotland and Wales in early June. The challenge will cover a total of 23 miles and an ascent of 3064 metres (10, 052 ft), beginning at Ben Nevis in Scotland and will end 24 hours later at Snowdon in Wales. The hike will be a physical and mental challenge, but we know the team are up for the challenge.
To motivate the team through the challenge, we are asking friends, family, colleagues and the broader community to donate to this outstanding cause. Each member of the team has a personal target of £2,000 which will contribute to our total target of £30,000.
The participants of this challenge are; Sunita Atwal, Sandra Hayes, Vishesh Mehta, Joseph Todd, Lenora Caton, Ailie Plummer, Timo Dijkstra and Rishi Thakur.
All funds raised will go directly to Alder Hey, with no contributions going towards the cost of the hike.
