Got my walking boots, got my sunscreen, got my t-shirt and I am going to walk those bridges at our London Bridges Walk like there’s no tomorrow. There’ll be over 120 of us walking the London Bridges this coming Sunday 14 July - the start is 11am so, gather a bit before.  We will be meeting at The Morpeth Arms, 55 Millbank, Westminster for the 10km walk up and over some of the world’s most famous bridges, seeing plenty of London's landmarks. 

There are so many things to love about this event, from dogs wearing t-shirts to remembering that London really is an amazing city. Plus the weather is set fair for the day. 

Come and join us and help raise funds for our very special appeal called the Patients’ Fund. Here, a small amount of money can go a long way as this fund buys things which our patients really need but there is absolutely no NHS support for - from iPads for young respiratory patients, portable IV pumps for patients on the urgent transplant list and camp beds for parents, to enable them to stay beside their child whilst in hospital. 

Big thanks to Mark Watts for sponsoring the walk.  I have been on a Mark Watts coach several times and it is a very comfortable and reliable service (as well as Mark being a really super person, married to our very own Lisa who works at Royal Brompton’s Charity hub).  If ever you want a brilliant coach service look no further;   

I hope to see you there. There's still time to sign up here.  

And a huge congratulations to Sallinder Rai, Raf Notarianni and all the volunteers for what sounds like it was a fantastic Summer Picnic at Harefield on Friday. It’s the first one I have missed due to a family funeral and I am so sorry I missed it. Well done for raising a fantastic sum for Harefield Hospital. Thank you to everyone who came and supported it – as well as enjoying a super event, you will have made a difference to the lives of our patients and their families at Harefield Hospital.
