  • Yorkshire Three Peaks – Gemma

    Yorkshire Three Peaks – Gemma

    I have always loved the outdoors and have recently spent more time exploring local footpaths and areas of outstanding natural beauty resulting in my first climb up Munro in Glencoe.  This has lead to the decision of taking on the Yorkshire Three Peaks on Sunday 15 September 2024!  This will be an excellent way to challenge myself as well as raising money for a cause that is close to my heart,  Active Against Cancer (AAC) as part of Harrogate Hospital & Community Charity (HHCC).  I’m excited to take on the challenge and take advantage of the training time to visit more beautiful areas of the British countryside.

    Yorkshire Three Peaks – Oliver

    Harrogate Hospital & Community Charity (HHCC)  are really excited to be working once again with Sky Blue Adventures to bring the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge on Sunday 15 September 2024!

    I am a Volunteer at Harrogate Hospital Radio and really enjoy a challenge! I successfully summited Mount Kilimanjaro in January 2019, which is 19,340ft AMSL. The Yorkshire Three Peaks seemed like the perfect opportunity to dig out my walking shoes, alongside raising money for HHCC.

    All the money raised from this exciting challenge will go towards vital funds, going above and beyond the NHS for the benefit of patients, their families and staff across the footprint of Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust.

  • Support The Special Care Baby Unit at Harrogate District Hospital

    Support The Special Care Baby Unit at Harrogate District Hospital

    The Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU) here at Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust (HDFT) is a Level 1 special care baby unit with 7 cots. We look after babies born over 32 weeks gestation who require extra support. The nurses work alongside parents to ensure they are included in their baby’s care and encourage and support areas such as breastfeeding and skin to skin. We are currently raising money to make environmental changes to the unit. The impact of these changes would be significant for those accessing them; having a baby born with unexpected complications is very challenging for families, therefore we want to give them a home away from home where possible.

  • Support Woodlands Ward at Harrogate District Hospital

    Support Woodlands Ward at Harrogate District Hospital

    Woodlands Ward is a 16 bedded general paediatric ward which takes children ranging from 0-16 years of age. We see all children of any speciality such as surgery, ophthalmology, ear nose and throat etc. As the only acute paediatric unit within the Harrogate District Hospital, we want to make sure we are providing child friendly, individualised care. Recently most of our fundraised money has supported the completed artwork in the main bay areas within Woodlands Ward and within some of the side rooms. We would relish the opportunity to continue this artwork in our remaining side rooms, but do not currently have the funds to do this. The artwork creates a warmer, more inviting area for children to visit, hopefully alleviating some of their anxiety. The feedback received from the environmental changes to Woodlands Ward over the past few years has been palpable, families who visited prior to the artwork have commented on how much more relaxed their children were since the changes have been made. We are looking to continue this fundraising and make the ward a home away from home.

  • Anthony Henson Virtual Pennine Way for Active Against Cancer

    Anthony Henson Virtual Pennine Way for Active Against Cancer

    Over the next 8 months I am in isolation for 8 weeks during which I am going to walk the Pennine Way virtually in my garden, 268miles (431KM), as well as visit spots along the way with friends and family when not isolating. During the past 12 months and in preparation for the next treatment I have been supported by Active Against Cancer. Active Against Cancer aim to help those living and being treated for cancer maintain and achieve a level of fitness to get them through the ordeals of treatment and surgery as well as providing mental and wellbeing support. Without them I would not have been able to deal with the treatments I have received and would not be able to continue to move forward, they have been a key part in keeping me alive and positive. I do hope you will sponsor me to do this and thank you in advance for your generosity.
