25 staff walk 25km to raise money for the RHN

On the 10 September 2022, some of our staff and patient relatives joined 2,000 others on the 25km Thames Bridges Trek, raising an incredible £14,000 for the RHN. The 25 strong team started their trek at Putney Bridge, and finished at the mighty Tower Bridge – passing sixteen famous and historical crossings along the way.

The event took place two days after the death of the RHN’s patron HM Queen Elizabeth II, which made the team’s achievements even more special.

Abigayle Daniels, one of the trainee nursing associates at the hospital who took part said, “It was amazing to join so many people from the RHN to fundraise for an organisation so close to all of us. We are so grateful to everyone who donated to improve the lives of our patients and residents”.

Andy Lambert, who is maintenance supervisor at the RHN, raised £3,000 of the overall sum said, “I have seen first-hand how much the charity relies on fundraising and donations in order to care for the patients living with life changing brain injuries, which is why I’m so pleased to have raised over £3,000 for the hospital”.

Thank you to the whole Trek team for their fundraising efforts on top of all of the amazing work they continue do for the patients, residents and families at the RHN.

The RHN cares for adults with severe brain injuries and provides services and therapies to ensure the best possible quality of life for people with neuro-disability. Your donations are hugely important and fund a range of therapies and services which make a tremendous difference to the quality of a person’s life.
