RRT Assist at Anthony Nolan Fundraising Event
Staff from the Southampton General Hospital organised a sponsored walk to raise money for the Anthony Nolan Trust after one of their colleague’s children was diagnosed with Leukaemia. Phoebe is a three year old girl who lives in Waterlooville and is currently being treated in Bristol Hospital after she caught an infection following chemotherapy for the disease.
The sponsored walk was from St James Park in Southampton (near Southampton General Hospital) to Queen Alexandra Hospital (in Portsmouth) and was over 22 miles of varied terrain – a tough physical test for anyone. The Anthony Nolan Trust is a charity which raises awareness of Leukaemia and helps fund research into this disease. They also campaign to increase the number of bone marrow donors.
