Hospital staff red-dy to raise money

Published 04/02/2015

Staff from Derby Hospitals will be seeing red in a good way to raise money for a national heart charity.

At the Royal Derby Hospital, many staff will be wearing red clothes and holding fun events to raise money for the Wear It Beat It campaign.

The initiative is being run by the British Heart Foundation nationwide on February 6. The idea is for as many people as possible across the country to wear red and raise money for the work the charity does.

The hospital’s Clinical Measurement Department will be holding a cake stall, book sale and tombola throughout the day, with staff wearing red clothes and matching lipstick. Last year the department raised £650 for the charity and is hoping to better that total this year.

Elsewhere the Trust’s Resuscitation Department, also in red, are holding competitions, teaching people how to safely perform chest compressions and then seeing how many they can perform correctly on a manikin. Prizes, which have been donated to the appeal, will be available, including meals at The Blenheim, Hackwood Farm, the Mickleover Court Hotel and Anoki restaurant.

The team will be at the main entrance to the hospital from 8.30am to 3pm.
