Cambridge specialist nurse wins award from children’s charity

  • Comment

A specialist paediatric haematology nurse from Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge has received an award for her contribution to charity fundraising and ambassadorship.

Jodi Betts received the award from the Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity at an event last night.

Her post, which covers Eastern England, was created by the charity and covers all children under Addenbrooke’s non-malignant haematology service who previously did not have a dedicated nurse specialist.

Ms Betts is currently one of 54 Roald Dahl specialist children’s nurses. They care for over 10,000 children with serious, rare, undiagnosed or overlooked conditions, as well as severe epilepsy, blood disorders and acquired brain injury, supporting both them and their families.

The event also saw Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity celebrate the results of a year-long partnership with home furnishing company Dunelm.

This included raising £233,231 towards the charity’s work providing specialist children’s nurses and family support for seriously ill children across the UK.

Dunelm chief executive John Browett said: “It gives me great pleasure to present this award to Jodi this evening.

“Her outstanding dedication to her work at Addenbrooke’s hospital, as well as the incredible efforts she has put in fundraising and raising awareness of the work Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity do, is truly inspiring,” he added.

This year would have marked popular children’s author Roald Dahl’s 100th birthday.
