Shannon's year of fundraising to thank UHNM Staff

In July 2022 Shannon Smith’s great Aunt Roma suffered a stroke as a result of a brain aneurysm. She was found unresponsive at home by her husband and rushed to the Royal Stoke where she’s remained since.

During this time she’s received care from a range of wards and departments across UHNM including the Critical Care Unit, Acute Rehabilitation Trauma Unit (ARTU), Neurology, Physiotherapy and Speech and Language Therapists.

To thank our staff for their ‘amazing’ support, Shannon has decided to undertake a year’s worth of fundraising challenges for UHNM Charity including long-distance walks, abseiling and even a bungee jump!

She said: “From the minute she entered the hospital, the staff have been nothing but incredible. Not only have they been supporting Roma as their patient, but they have supported us as her family too. They always do their best to ensure all of Roma’s needs are met, as well as being happy, hard-working and an overall credit to the hospital.”

This weekend Shannon is lacing up her walking shoes to walk the 50km of the Jurassic Coast in Dorset and Devon.
