Fundraising UHNM vs GP Cricket Match Raises Over £9,000 for Pakistan Flood Relief Effort

 


Consultants from University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust (UHNM) have raised over £9,000 for the Pakistan floods relief effort through a fundraising cricket match.

The consultants squared up against a team of local GPs at Moddershall and Oulton Cricket Club on Saturday (24 September).

As well as donations for the match the event featured food and gift stalls, raffles and a bouncy castle.

Dr Nadir Khan, Consultant Radiologist at UHNM said: “We as a community of doctors are ecstatic at the success of the event which was put together so well in a short period of time. There was a big turnout from staff from across UHNM, not just those of a Pakistani or South Asian background, and it was fantastic to see everybody supporting their colleagues demonstrating UHNM is a great place to work.

“It has been a remarkable experience and good way to bring people together in such a friendly atmosphere to share our passion for cricket, food and of course raise funds for the benefit of the people of Pakistan. I would like to thank everybody who got involved with our event either through attending the match or donating, and hope we can soon reach the £10,000 mark.”

Just over £3,000 was raised on the day of the match, in which the GPs came out victorious, with a further £6,000 being donated online.

Money raised will be donated to the Global Relief Trust.

The match comes as staff and patients at UHNM have donated almost £400 to the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) through UHNM staff networks.

Sophie Dale from the DEC said: “It’s fantastic to hear that patients and staff at UHNM have made a donation to the DEC Pakistan Floods Appeal through their staff networks. We are really appreciative of everybody’s support.”

Online donations for the match can still be made at uhnm.nhs.uk.
