Following on from their successful fundraising campaign in May, when they climbed Snowdon, they have now set themselves another challenge in order to raise even more money for the fund.

Mandy Carnahan, Trust Lead Research Nurse, said: “The funds will enable us to carry out as much research as possible across all specialities for our patients, money raised helps us with staff and equipment costs, funding new research ideas and much more. Please support us in our endeavour so that we can get closer to finding new treatments and improving the health of our population – the more we can do, the closer we can get!”

Julia Clarke, Director of Public Participation at The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust, said: “The Research and Innovation team is doing an incredible job through its fundraising to raise awareness and fund new research. Research in new medicines and technology is so important to improve patient care and outcomes for the future and the team is proud to be part of this important work.”
