World Radiographer day celebrations!

On Friday Radiographer- Liz Loach, & the ROH Imaging team held their very own fundraiser, promoting World Radiographer day as well as raising money for their department.

With the help of Society of Radiographers (SoR) the team raised awareness of imaging careers as well as the history behind radiography. The day is celebrated on the 8th November each year, and marks the anniversary of the discovery of x-radiation by Wilhelm Roentgen in 1895.

Liz and the team continuously look for ways of improving patient experience across all imaging services and use their passion to help them raise money each year. They raised an incredible £229.89, through a bake sale, quiz and tombola.

They are currently evaluating patient feedback to see how this money can be spent to improve patient experience within the imaging waiting areas.

Thank you to all who visited the stand in outpatients and helped us celebrate the wonderful work of our imaging team.

A big well done to Liz, & imaging team for leading on this celebration with very little support from the fundraising team. They are amazing!

Birmingham Half Marathon Triumph!

Our wonderful fundraisers braved the rain and ran a total of 13 miles in aid of our cause this Sunday.

All our fundraisers had a very personal connection with the hospital
which drove them to almost double their fundraising targets.

Matthew and Natasha both were fundraising to say thank you
for the care their daughter received over the last couple of years for a spinal
condition called Scoliosis. Erin’s care was life changing for her and her
family, so much so she’s now back to a sport which she loved!

“Erin has actually gone back to running parkrun over the past few weeks; pain free; something she could have only dreamt of before” Mum – Natasha

Adam Roberts, another of our fundraisers had a hip resurface
at the hospital some years ago and because of his great experience of the
hospital, decided to apply to work there. Safe to say he was successful and has
been working for the trust for some years.

“Not only did ROH give me a new lease of life, I am also lucky enough to work for the Trust. So I have personally experienced, and also get to see on a daily basis, the amazing job all of the staff do for our patients”

Its truly humbling to see such support from our community,
towards such an important appeal.

We have raised a total of £856 including gift aid towards the Eureka Appeal.

This will support an extra 56 hours of research nursing on
specific projects which is incredible.

We’d like to say a huge thank you to all our fundraisers, who went above and beyond to reach their target, raise awareness and promote our charity!
