ICU - Wright Family

The Wright Family thank the ICU Staff

The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) was recently presented with a cheque for £4500 from the Wright Family.


The Wright Family, coordinated by Jo Wright have undertaken a wide range of fundraising activities including a climb to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania (Africa).  This monumental challenge was spurred following a stay in ICU by Jo’s sister, Lindsay and the Wright Family wanted to give something back to the team who had saved Lindsay’s life.


In October 2011, the Wright Family presented their cheque to Janet Hadcock (Lead Nurse, Critical Care) and Pam Walker (Matron, ICU) and expressed their thanks to the whole team that was involved in Lindsay’s care.


Salford Royal is just one of the beneficiaries of the Wright Family’s efforts and they have requested that ICU purchase a new piece of vital equipment that will contribute to patient care and to dedicate this to Lindsay.

Paula Roberts donation to H3

Paula’s mountain fundraiser

Paula Roberts climbed to the top of Kilimanjaro in Africa to raise £1860 for the Trust.


She was inspired to take part in the challenge after Amanda Smith, a customer at her brother’s pub, was diagnosed with a rare form of leukaemia and treated on the H3 ward.


Paula took on Africa’s highest peak in February 2011, raising a fantastic amount of money with the help of sponsors.  


She thanks Bury Market Hall, Bolton College, locals from her brother’s pub - the Market Street Tavern in Kearsley, PTS Schoolwear, Rowlinson Rainbow Accountants, B.I.N. UK Ltd, Amanda Smith’s family, her aunt who has recovered from breast cancer and family and friends for their generosity and support.

PANDA Easter Egg appeal

Children on our PANDA unit were treated to Easter eggs thanks to the Worsley branch of Ready Steady Store and Girl Guides within the Eccles district.


Customers at the shop donated 49 eggs, including a large luxury egg for staff on the ward. Additionally, the Eccles Girl Guides supported the appeal by giving 13 eggs. Ready Steady Store Manager Jamie Sharp and Susan Oakey from Eccles Girl Guiding visited staff and patients to hand over the treats during the Easter weekend. This is the third year the store has donated eggs to the unit and we are extremely grateful to them.
