Long-time supporter Iona Botfield is once again raising funds for UHNM Charity, this time through a virtual Lands End to John O’Groats distance challenge.
Iona from Stafford is raising funds for Ward 216 at the Staffordshire Children's Hospital at Royal Stoke to thank the staff for the care given to son Harry.
Iona said: "In July 2020 we had our little boy Harry and unfortunately he had to spend almost a week receiving expert care from the fantastic doctors, nurses and consultants on the ward. I want to repay their hard work supporting little ones at their most vulnerable, and the kindness and compassion they showed to us parents, by raising vital funds for the Ward."
"This will involve me running a total of 1,083miles/1,743km across the year. Although this might not seem like the biggest of my past challenges, fitting it around returning to work full time and juggling a baby will definitely make it a big challenge for me!"
"This last year has been a tough year for everyone, if you’re able to donate, even just a pound of two, or simply send a message a good luck I would be eternally grateful."
