Last Saturday, 15 July, five Clatterbridge Cancer Centre nurses took part in the National Three Peak Challenge to raise money for charity.
The nurses work at Clatterbridge Cancer Centre within the haemato-oncology department. Amy Wilson, Emma Lusby, Rachel Hollewell, Luke Dowey, and Molly Kohl climbed the three highest mountains in the UK.
They climbed Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike, and Snowdon one after the other on the same day within 24 hours. The nurses had to complete Snowdon at night time with head torches.
The nurses said, “The Bloom Appeal is a charity that sits close to all of our hearts. They massively contribute towards improving the well-being of patients across Merseyside with a blood cancer diagnosis.
“Bloom are an exceptionally selfless charity and always prioritise the best interests of the patients, their support has transformed the treatment journeys of many of our patients in recent years.”
The Bloom Appeal offer grants to patients who are facing financial hardship as a result of the many challenges their diagnosis brings, whether this be helping them buy warm clothes through the winter, or a new wig to help them feel more themselves. They contribute towards funding staff training and higher education modules, equipment such as fans and heaters; the little things that add up to transform their journey.
Before they even set off, the nurses had raised £1,810 and at the time of publication, have raised £2655
The nurses said, “Any donations would be greatly appreciated- thank you for your support.”
