Hospital’s maintenance team raises money for babies’ and children’s wards

17 June 2013

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital’s maintenance team, Norland, wanted to make a lasting impact on the lives of the patients at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and so decided to support The Children’s Hospital Trust Fund in its effort to provide medical and surgical equipment for the hospital’s babies’ and children’s wards

On the 5 June Simon Black, Greg Benson, AJ Kleiner, Bruce Chisholm and Andy Glasspool of Norland cycled 300 miles from London to Paris in three days in the hope to raise £5,000 for the charity.

The Norland team has raised £2,000 so far but are still hoping for more donations so that they can meet their target. The Children’s Hospital Trust Fund is urging members of the hospital and the local community to show their support by placing donations via Norland’s Just Giving page http://www.justgiving.com/LondontoParisorBust.

The money will be going towards the Children’s Hospital Trust Fund’s Pluto Appeal, which is currently trying to raise £500,000 to buy additional equipment for the UK’s first da Vinci robot dedicated to babies and children.

The extra equipment will mean that the robot can be put to full use and will be able to carry out all the required operations. Babies and children will be operated on with more accuracy, will suffer less pain, have smaller scars and will be out of hospital quicker.

Simon Black of Norland said – “We want to help the Children’s Hospital Trust Fund because the work they do has the most lasting impact on patients. A baby or child who is operated on with a da Vinci robot will see a lifetime of benefits. We want to help these babies and children to go on to lead the best of lives possible after their surgery.”
