Frank Hill and his colleagues on Airedale ward 5 (24 bed stroke and neurological rehabilitation ward) raised over £1,100 for Airedale Hospital and Community Charity, so that they can invest in new rehabilitation technology to aid upper limb recovery in stroke patients.

They aim to purchase two upper limb rehabilitation devices that staff can use one on one with patients, to assist with the recovery of upper limb function.

As Airedale NHS Foundation Trust covers an area of 700 square miles, the team covered 700 miles through running, walking, swimming and cycling throughout the month of October. Each member of the team and their families contributed to the total and they covered 963.6 miles overall, exceeding their original target.
