We are pleased to support The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (RNOH) as our chosen charity.
The RNOH Charity is a vital partner in the way the RNOH delivers care. It raises money to support the hospital’s pioneering work in orthopaedic research and education, and to purchase vital medical equipment and facilities which are not affordable within the limits of NHS funding.
RNOH is among the top three centres in the world for the treatment of many orthopaedic conditions, including acute spinal injuries, bone cancer, and complex hip and knee problems. As a national and international centre of excellence, it treats over 120,000 patients annually, from all over the world.
Unlike other hospitals, the RNOH cares for its patients for life. Its youngest patients are less than a year old. Its oldest patients are over 100. More than 30% of the RNOH’s work is for children, who undergo surgical procedures ranging from spinal correction to the lifesaving removal of cancerous tumours.
In addition to the great work they carry out, we have a personal reason for choosing RNOH, as they have been treating Hannah, who is our New Business Development Executive at School Minibus Company. For the past two years Hannah has received treatment for an ABC (Aneurysmal bone cyst) and the care, support and expertise given has been amazing.
We are busy planning our fundraising schedule for 2016 which so far includes a Retro afternoon tea with entertainment on 11th May and our very own Andy Saych will be running 12 marathons in 12 months.
