NHS doctors, nurses and patients completed a sponsored abseil-relay at the Olympic Park on Saturday to raise £10,000 towards an ultrasound machine for Stevenage’s Lister Hospital. The team from the East and North Herts NHS Trust’s rheumatology department, took on the challenge in Stratford to raise funds towards the £30,000 machine and support those affected by rheumatoid arthritis. The event was the driven by Teresa Shakespeare-Smith, who has lived with rheumatoid arthritis for 13 years, and Sharon Pearson, her rheumatology specialist nurse at the Lister. Sharon is the wife of our very own Karl Pearson, Senior Design Manager at Crofton Interiors, therefore the company took a special interest in this event. We would like to congratulate all who took part in this fundraiser, a fantastic achievement for an excellent cause.
