Doncaster & Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals are in receipt of a very generous donation following a sponsored 12 hour run by residents and staff from HMP Hatfield in Doncaster.
51 residents and staff took part in the sponsored run covering 345 kilometres, or 690 laps around the sports field, with at least one person running at all times from 8am to 8pm. The event raised a massive £1000 which will go towards the memorial 'Rainbow Gardens' at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospital sites.
The inspiration for the event came from one of the residents who approached Jason Marsh from the PE Department to say he wanted to do something to support the local NHS for all they are doing in the current challenging times. Jason suggested a sponsored run and was thrilled when so many residents wanted to get involved.
