Fundraiser raises over £2500 for Orthopaedic Hand Service
On Friday 9th November fundraiser Liz Markall & her family pulled together a night full of fun to raise money for a service very close to her heart.
Liz has been a patient at the ROH for many years, and this year alone underwent 6 operations on her hand by Mr Craigen – Specialist Hand surgeon. She decided she wanted to say thank you for the amazing service that Mr Craigen & all the staff at the hospital provided to her.
Liz & her mum Judith, have been working hard, connecting with businesses & friends throughout the UK for the last 4 months appealing for raffle & auction prizes. Between them, they have managed to connect with over 60 business’ across the UK and received that many prizes, that they were forced to hold a raffle, auction & silent auction on the night.
After an amazing effort Liz & her family raised over £2500.00 for the hospital. We have been so impressed with their commitment to fundraising.
We are now in conversations with the Hand team to ensure this money is utilised for a great cause. To improve patient experience and enhance care within special hand services at ROH!
