The 6.5 mile scenic walk starts at Heartlands Hospital, follows the canal and finishes at Solihull Hospital. Last year, the event, which was organised by the Hospital’s official Charity, saw around 100 doctors and nurses from the Trust, including Heartlands, Solihull and Good Hope Hospitals, join with members of the public to raise an impressive £7,000.
Emma Hale, Head of Fundraising, said: “After the success of last year, we were really excited to do this event again. It’s a great day out, fun for all the family and vital money is raised for our patients at the same time. We’re looking for more people to sign up, so get in touch!”
Covering Solihull Hospital, Birmingham Heartlands Hospital, Good Hope Hospital and the Birmingham Chest Clinic, the Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust Charity’s aim is to raise funds for the benefit of its patients. Whether it is funding groundbreaking technology or just a more comfortable chair, the patient is always at the centre of its aims.
The walk will take place on 29 September. If you are interested in signing up, you can get sponsored for any ward or department you like. Contact the Fundraising team on 0121 424 3838 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a registration form.
