The Lister hospital in Stevenage has been a part of my life both in a professional and personal way. I have had various roles in the trust, including being a volunteer, a healthcare assistant, a patient experience co-ordinator and now a junior doctor.

Being my local hospital, it has also been the place of care for many of my loved ones, including my brother when he was very ill in 2013 and my beautiful Grandma who we sadly lost in 2017.

I seem to always find myself looking for another challenge and would love to raise some money for the hospital at the same time. I am running the London Vitality 10K in May and cycling the 60 mile route from London to Cambridge in July, alongside my Dad and boyfriend.

We would appreciate any donations, no matter how small. Every £1 counts. Many thanks.
