Dr Kershaw’s Duo, Senior Sister, Kelly Foster and Lead Nurse for Community Services, Lindsey Harper signed themselves up to an epic fundraising challenge to raise funds to support the patients who they care for across the community.

Their challenge which has raised an incredible £5440.60 including Gift Aid, saw Kelly’s husband and Personal Trainer take part in a 14-hour fitness challenge which represents a long day shift at the Hospice, with Kelly and Lindsey doing a 7.5-hour challenge to represent a normal working shift. They all completed two hour rounds on the bike, rowing machine, ski machine and treadmill.

Kelly said: “We are overwhelmed with the support and generosity from everyone. The challenge was really tough but it was a great day with people coming to the gym to give us snacks to keep us going. We’d definitely love to do it again!”
