Nurses make a marathon effort to raise money

Two nurses who work at North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust have raised over £3,000 for charity after running the London Marathon last weekend.

Cardiology nurse Charlotte Treloar completed the race in 4 hours and 36 minutes, raising almost £2,000 so far and staff nurse Hannah West completed in 4 hours and 57 minutes and raised over £1,000.

Charlotte Treloar is raising money for the British Heart Foundation. Her partner’s niece, Phoebe, had open heart surgery at just two weeks old, and is one of the youngest people to receive such an operation.

Hannah, who works at the Assessment and Therapy Centre (ATC) ran to raise funds for Stroke Association in memory of her granny. Also, there are many stroke clinics in ATC so this charity is very close to Hannah’s heart.

Charlotte said: “I’d like to say thanks to everyone who supported and encouraged me, especially staff and patients on the cardiology floor, who all helped raise around £500. The atmosphere on the day was fantastic and I really enjoyed taking part.”

Hannah said: “It was a fantastic day, we got so much support from the crowds. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend the experience to anybody.”
