China Trek Raises £3,500

Lucy was introduced to St John’s when her friend passed away in 1994. She soon started working for the Renal Unit in the Hospital of St John and St Elizabeth, where she stayed for 17 years. When it was announced that the Renal Unit would be closing its doors, Lucy decided to set herself this big challenge.
Last month, she successfully trekked an incredible 80km for St John’s to one of the most recognisable attractions in the world and alongside her training Lucy has done some fantastic fundraising. Her grand total is now more than £3,500 and you can still support Lucy through her fundraising page.
Lucy said: “The trek was so well organised and it was amazing to walk parts of the wall in more remote areas. Some days were tougher than others but I made it! It was also wonderful to experience the Chinese culture – I loved the whole trip.”
We would like to say a big thank you to Lucy and all her supporters. Through her efforts, she has raised enough funds to run our Community and Hospice@Home services for 24 hours. This will make a big difference to the lives of patients just like her dear late friend.
Lucy’s trek has been such a success we are looking for adventurers to take part next year. If you are interested in finding out more about the China Trek, click here.
