A charity fundraising event, sponsored by AJN, has raised over £50,000 for two charities supporting the mental health and wellbeing of UK healthcare professionals.
Led by event founder, Gary Pittaway, a team of six intrepid fundraisers faced the risks of avalanches, the hazards of glacier crossings, freezing temperatures and altitude sickness, as they tackled the mountain tops of the Swiss Alps.
Over the course of five days the ‘Z to V’ team took on the famous ‘Patrouille des Glaciers’ alpine hike route – widely regarded as one of the world’s toughest alpine ski routes – in a bid to acknowledge our healthcare professionals and say thank you for everything they have done during the Covid pandemic.
The final count still needs to be completed but well over £50,000 has been raised, which will be split evenly between Doctors in Distress and the Intensive Care Society.
As lead sponsor, AJN was delighted to be part of this event and on behalf of the team, we’d like to thank everyone for their support and donations.
