THE ROYAL SOCIETY OF ST GEORGE RAISING FUNDS FOR NHS CHARITIES TOGETHER – BY TEAM ‘SIXES & SEVENS’.

THE ROYAL SOCIETY OF ST GEORGE RAISING FUNDS FOR NHS CHARITIES TOGETHER   – BY TEAM ‘SIXES & SEVENS’.

The Chairman of The Royal Society of St George, Ewhurst resident Joanna Cadman, 67 years, together with 76 year old Seahaven Branch Member, Rosemary Holland started their 100 mile walk to raise funds for ‘NHS Charities Together’ at 9am on Monday 26th October from the Cranleigh Medical Centre. Each day for five days, they will walk from there to the Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford and back thus by the Friday of that week will have achieved 100 miles.

This is the Chairman’s third long distance walk the other two raised together well over £24,000 for Combat Stress, London Air Ambulance and the Royal British Legion.

The inspiration for this walk came from the magnificent effort earlier this year by Captain Sir Tom Moore. Supporting ‘NHS Charities Together’ is a positive way to help the front-line staff in the NHS throughout the country. There are 250 NHS Charities in the UK providing funds and services above and beyond what the NHS alone can provide.

Chairman Joanna says “At this moment in our lives there is no better or more deserving cause than NHS Charities Together. The NHS is amazing. It is there for us at the most profound moments in our lives, no matter who we are or what we need. This is a positive way to help the front line staff in hospitals and through the widespread NHS..” 

At the start of the fourth day of the fund raising walk, the Lord- Lieutenant met the intrepid team, Sixes & Sevens at the Cranleigh Medical Centre to give them a rousing send off. He said “Delighted to have the opportunity to send off the Sixes & Sevens on a wet Thursday morning. These remarkable ladies are completing twenty miles each day in wet and muddy conditions to support our wonderful NHS.”
