Staff raise £3,000 at London Moon Walk for breast cancer charity

Nine members of Spire Hartswood Hospital’s Outpatients department have raised £3,000 for breast cancer charity, Walk the Walk, in memory of a colleague who died of the disease last year.

The Hartswood staff took part in the London Moon Walk on Saturday night with over 15,000 other walkers, powering their way through 13 miles of wind and rain.

The half marathon began at midnight from Clapham Common and the team finished at 5.30am Sunday.

Receptionist, Debbie McNamara, said “It was hard work. The wind didn’t let up and it was cold and tiring but raising so much money makes it all worthwhile!”

Louise Peat, Outpatients and Bupa Health Clinic Manager at Spire Hartswood Hospital, said:

“This is a charity that is close to our hearts because we lost one of our own nurses to breast cancer last year. Kim was a valued friend and colleague who lived life to the full and was an inspiration to us all in the way she came to terms with her diagnosis.

"We’re so pleased we’ve been able to raise money to help others living with the same illness.”

Spire Hartswood Hospital in Brentwood was the first private hospital in the UK to be awarded the Macmillan Quality Environment Mark for both breast care and oncology services.  The hospital offers clinics, screening, tests, scans and non-surgical and surgical treatment to patients who have symptoms of breast disease including cancer.
