Staff from Mountbatten have raised over £1,500 in a virtual festive challenge.
Despite the official annual Santa Dash being cancelled earlier this month, Mountbatten nurses, volunteers and their families walked, ran, or cycled a combined total of over 90km.
Their individual festive challenges took place all over the island during December and were completed in fancy dress.
Nigel Hartley, CEO of Mountbatten, says:
“The enthusiasm of our staff and willingness to go the extra mile never cease to amaze me.
“With the Santa Dash cancelled due to the pandemic, we knew it meant a loss of over 5k of income at the end of one of our toughest years financially, so it’s incredible to see them raise such a large amount.
“They did this in their own time with love and kindness for those we care for.
“I would like to say a huge thank you to all our staff and the Island community who continue to support us”.
