A fundraiser from Trentham who spent 168 days in hospital following a serious riding accident has returned to the Royal Stoke to say thank you to some of the staff who looked after her.
Sarah Washington needed the care of staff from UHNM’s Critical Care Unit and Acute Rehabilitation Trauma Unit (ARTU) following the accident whilst riding with a friend in 2020.
After she was finally well enough and to say thank you to everybody who cared for her, Sarah set herself a challenge of walking 168 miles in six months- a mile for every day she was in hospital raising over £3,500!
She returned to Royal Stoke to once again meet staff from Critical Care and ARTU and present her cheque.
Sarah said: “It feels really nice to come back and see all the people who looked after me again. I hope that the funds raised will help other patients like me that have had really bad accidents and need intense rehabilitation. I’m feeling really good now and was able to make an amazing recovery thanks to all the amazing staff here at UHNM.”
