Nurses climb Snowdon to fund children’s smiles

A KIND-HEARTED group of children’s ward staff from Ormskirk Hospital have raised £3,476 by climbing the highest mountain in Wales.

Children’s nurse and organiser Jess Healy said: “Last year we did a charity walk to raise money to revamp our playroom. We had some amazing painters create a jungle-themed mural and we want to invite them back to paint some other areas. We will also use the money to go towards resources and equipment to make a visit to A&E as pleasant as possible for our young patients.

“We are so passionate about and proud of the job we do, that we want our department to be the best it can be.”

Trust Chief Executive Trish Armstrong-Child added: “What a fantastic team we have in our children’s A&E. They are truly an inspirational bunch and have raised much-needed funds for the department.”

A spokesperson for Southport and Ormskirk NHS Trust added: “Congratulations to all of the Paediatric A&E team, who completed their Snowdon climb. The money raised is being used to decorate the A&E rooms, once the building work is completed in the triage room, that will also be re-repainted.”
