Olivia's Charity Trek

July 4, 2017

On Saturday 1st July Olivia one of our dental nurses set off on a 24.5 mile trek in aid of Barnsley Hospital Charity.

Olivia ready for the off....

The trek I am sure many of you will of heard of was the Yorkshire 3 Peaks which includes the peaks of Pen-Y Ghent, Whernside and Inglebrough.

The aim was to complete the trek in under 12 hours and of course raise money for Charity.

Olivia completed the trek in 11 hours and 21 minutes.

Olivia was with a group of fundraisers including her dad

Although the final total is not yet in to date Barnsley Hospital Charity  have said the group have raised £4,500 which is fantastic. Olivia and her Dad's work colleagues raised around £550 towards that total.

Donations and charity events such as this enable Barnsley Hospital Charity to purchase items such as extra sensory toys for children with learning difficulties, snugglies for premature babies and wheelchairs fir the Acute Stroke Unit. The charity has also funded specialist training in nipple tattooing for women who have undergone breast surgery following breast cancer and specialist equipment in neonatal care.

A big well done to Olivia on completing the trek and raising money for such a great cause...
