I am truly privileged and extremely proud to be working for two World Class Leading Hospitals! I must say having seen first hand just how extremely dedicated and hard working these teams are - working under extreme pressures with the challenges faced with Covid - I am even more prouder to support these incredible teams who really stepped up during these stressful and uncertain time. 

Having completed runs, muddy obstacle courses, firewalk's, abseil's, zip wires and sky dives how do I up my game and take it up a notch?

Well Wing Walking of course!

This was supposed to have happened last year but this annoying virus seemed to have put a stop to that.

I am pleased to say this event is now going ahead and ever so excited to be taking on this exhilarating challenge on July 10 :)

I know some of you may think I am crazy and clearly mad but I have met and continue to meet such amazing people here at Harefield and this is my way of giving back to this wonderful hospital and dedicated teams.

This year's fundraising is supporting our Covid-19 Relief Fund.

We’re raising £100,000 - Our hospitals have significantly increased their critical care capacity and are seeing patient admissions like never before. This has been the most challenging wave of the pandemic, as we receive referrals from hospitals around the capital who are sending us their most desperately ill patients.

On top of this, many of our frontline staff were still feeling exhausted from the first wave and subsequent backlog from delayed routine operations.

To respond to the needs of our world class hospitals and staff, the Charity is extending our Covid-19 appeal so that we continue to support the wellbeing of our exceptional staff whilst they provide the highest quality care. This appeal will also purchase life-saving equipment for those needing urgent care now, but also for patients in the future. We aim to contribute to priorities, such as:

  • Staff wellbeing and sustenance packages, including drinks, hand cream, massages and treatments
  • With strict limitations on visitors, an onsite Patient Experience Coordinator will deliver face to face or virtual activities to improve the experience of adult patients, particularly those who experience long and/or multiple stays. Several patients have been inpatients for over 6 months
  • £1,750 will buy one of 20 humidifiers needed, which will add moisture and warmth to the air delivered to a patient via a ventilator. This will reduce dryness and improve comfort when breathing

Please donate as much or as little as you can - by each and every donation you are helping us to fight heart & lung disease!

Thank you all so much for your love & support Sall xxx

P.S. I will be instructing the pilot not to land in the UK - hot sunny beach is the destination...as this is only plane I will get on this year!

P.P.S. Not quite sure what to do next year...any suggestion please comment below! XX
