100 days in intensive care

Our thanks to the Holker family for raising £4,400 in support of our intensive care team, after husband and father Justin spent 100 days battling COVID-19 in the unit before spending another 18 days in the rehabilitation ward. When he left hospital on 24 July he astonished everyone by walking out himself.

Hazel Holker acknowledged that the “medical team were the most wonderful, inspiring people you could hope to meet – they cared for him tirelessly, they never gave up on him and they did this while risking their own health”.  Together the family have sought to raise funds to help refurbish the nurses’ room in intensive care to make it as comfortable as possible for when they take their deserved breaks during their long shifts.
