This July, fundraiser Christina Shiels, completed a massive seven day challenge for her Dad, Dennis, who in 2019 spent six months on ward 5 at Airedale receiving intense rehab and therapy after he suffered a cardiac arrest. Christina wanted to give back to the hospital after her Dad received brilliant treatment from the teams on ward 5, so challenged herself to run 10km, cycle 10km and swim 1500m every day for a whole week.

She did amazingly well, and raised over £1,400 for both Airedale Hospital and Community Charity, and Headway Brain Injury Association who also supported her family at the time.
