Help support our Gloucestershire Hospital Nurses in their “Yogathon” challenge!

To mark the start of Commemorative Week, a team of nurses are taking on a twelve hour yoga challenge to help raise funds for our Green Spaces Appeal.

Charlotte Jakab-Hall, Sophie Finch-Turner, Rosanne Curwen and Cat Harker, with support from Leanne Potente and Honor Govan, will start at 7am on Monday 19th April and continue posing, bending, stretching and flexing all the way through until 7pm!

The team are taking on this challenge to support our latest appeal to help create new and improved outdoor spaces across the hospitals. This includes a Commemorative Garden that is being created to remember the lives lost during the pandemic and to thank our amazing NHS staff for everything they have done and continue to do.

Leanne, a nurse in the Corporate Division at the Trust, said “We are raising funds for this appeal as we feel that the pandemic has highlighted more than ever the need for self-care in order to allow us to care for others. A green space for staff, patients, and visitors alike will provide a place for quiet contemplation, connection with nature, and a visible reminder to ‘take 5’ to rest and recharge.”
