Meet Kath! Kath is Ward Clerk on the Reedyford Ward at Pendle Community Hospital, and is all round fundraising extraordinaire.
She has worked at the Trust since 1979 and never misses an opportunity to get involved and support ELHTandMe. Whether its organising a raffle, sweepstake, book stall, bucket collection, or a fashion show, she is always first in line! Kath also truly exceeds at drumming up additional support for the charity in the workplace and local community to help raise funds to enhance patient and staff experience.
In recognition of Kath’s dedication and overwhelming support, ELHT&Me are delighted to officially welcome her to the team as one of our Charity Champions and look forward to working together to fundraise for those extras that make all the difference to our patients and staff.
Kath’s passion for fundraising began in the 1990s when she joined the fundraising committee for the Mayor of Burnley. This theme continued in 2019-20, supported former Mayor, Councillor Anne Kelly and her husband to raise thousands of pounds towards diagnostic equipment at Burnley General Teaching Hospital.
Her commitment to the cause knowing no bounds, Kath is also a founding member of the Friends of Pendle; a passionate and committed group of volunteers who work in partnership with ELHT&Me to support our hospitals, staff and patients.
Thank you for all that you do Kath, you are truly amazing!
