Daredevils and superheroes wanted for charity abseil!

Bradford Hospitals’ Charity is asking people to take the plunge and abseil down Bradford Royal Infirmary’s new hospital wing.

The charity abseil, which has a superhero theme, will take place on Saturday 22 September at the hospital in Duckworth Lane, Bradford.

Hayley Collis, Head of Fundraising for Bradford Hospitals’ Charity, said: “Every single day our doctors and nurses prove they are the best superheroes of all. We would invite people to dress as their real life superheroes or as fictional superheroes. But most importantly, we ask everyone to raise as much money as possible to enable us to continue to support patients and their families in Bradford.”

Bradford Hospitals’ Charity works in partnership with Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to support specialist equipment, training and research. It has funded a number of essential items, such as the Baby View software in the Neonatal Unit, which allows parents to see their baby via video link, as well as the My Life dementia software. The charity gave around £300,000 towards the new hospital wing at Bradford Royal Infirmary, which funded a number of essential items, such as parent beds, equipment for children with complex needs, as well as toys and a multi-sensory room. The charity funded a number of items for the elderly wing, such as carer beds, dementia friendly clocks and an electric physiotherapy plinth.

To sign up for the abseil, visit https://bradfordhospitalscharity.org/event/abseil-bradford-teaching-hospitals/ . Entry is £10 for under 18s and £20 for adults, with a minimum sponsorship of £100.
