Today’s Fundraiser Friday story focuses on the efforts of Viv Routledge.
Many of you will know Viv from Ward 33, where she works a Ward Clerk.
On top of her duties, Viv is a fantastic fundraiser for Bright Red, even taking part in our 2014 trek to Kilimanjaro. Through sheer determination she reached the summit, motivated all the way to the top through her relationships with patients and their families.
Viv said ‘It’s a privilege to meet and get to know so many amazing people and their families. The strength and courage they all show under such challenging and an often really difficult circumstance astounds me. They are all so uncomplaining they are an inspiration.
I am very proud to be part of the fantastic team on Ward 33’.
Thanks to Viv and the rest of the Kili Climbers we were able to move forward with plans to renovate the isolation rooms on Ward 33. A project we hope to start in the very near future.
We are very grateful to Viv for all she does – not just for Bright Red, but for the amazing work on Ward 33 too.
