Northwick Park nurses 'make a pass' at rugby star

  • Comment

England rugby captain Steve Borthwick visited nurses at London’s Northwick Park Hospital last month to help raise funds for the hospital’s haematology unit.

Fundraisers walked 550 miles from Newcastle to Twickenham – while passing a rugby ball non-stop – for 12 days and nights, raising nearly £100,000 for the unit. The trek was organised by the Richard Thomas Leukaemia Fund to mark its 10th anniversary.

The fund was set up by friends and family of Richard Thomas, who was cared for by staff at the haematology unit before he sadly passed away aged 22.
