How others have helped

Angela Jones  - Wales Trail Marathon

Angela Jones at marathon finish

We are hugely grateful to Angela Jones who ran the gruelling Wales Trail Marathon in June this year and raised funds for the QNI.
Angela ran the marathon for her friend Rachel, who has the incurable condition Motor Neurone Disease. She chose the QNI as ‘I was proud to be running my first marathon in the name of a charity dedicated to improving nursing care at home.’ 

Angela said of the marathon, ‘I felt an amazing sense of pride and achievement on reaching the finish line. Would I do it again? No, but I will never forget the experience.’ To read Angela's blog in full, please click here

On Saturday 30 August 2014, Queen's Nurse Anne Smith and her husband John set off on their epic journey cycling from Land's End to John O'Groats - on a tandem! - to raise funds for the QNI. 


QN Penny Millington - Cycle Race

Penny Millington Cycle Race
QN Penny Millington and her friend former nurse Judith Greenwood, recently completed a fundraising cycle ride for the QNI. 
The race - a 35 km cross country - took place around the countryside of Stockport.
‘We trained three times a week for 5 weeks,’ explains Penny. ‘The race itself went well. We finished in just over 2 hours, it was very muddy as it was all cross country and very hilly. When we had finished we were covered in mud!’ 
Penny and Judith raised over £100 from the cycle race.
‘Thank you so much to Penny and Judith,’ Crystal Oldman, the QNI’s Chief Executive said, ‘We are delighted that they raised this amount for the QNI! And we are very impressed they managed the 35km distance, so congratulations and thank you!’
