Together we can go further...

We wish to support our local hospital, its staff and the 230,000 people living in its catchment area.

Our challenge:

50 runners from the local area will be donning their running trainers on the 16-17th May 2020 to run the total length of Britain in a 24 hour period, Lands End to John o'Groats, an accumulated distance of 874 miles!

Adhering to government guidance all runners shall run a solo effort, covering a minimum distance of 17.48 miles each over the 24 hour period (12:00 16th - 12:00 17th May).

Why Raise a Rainbow?

The Raise a Rainbow appeal will support a range of hospital projects, the first of which are a new bereavement suite and a children's play area. Charity funding is used for the important equipment, projects and the vital extras that fall outside the remit of National Health Service funding.

The Raise a Rainbow Appeal will directly help people who need it most. The rainbow was chosen because it symbolises hope - the message is that together, we can make the James Paget even better for everyone
