Southmead Hospital Charity
With your help we can fund ground-breaking medical research, provide specialist equipment at the cutting-edge of technology and improve treatment facilities for generations to come.
Southmead Hospital Charity raises money to support the work of Southmead Hospital, Cossham Hospital and community health services in the Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset.
Working alongside our staff and patients, we fundraise for projects that are beyond the remit of the NHS but have a huge impact on the lives of patients.
Our Hero this week is a formidable fundraiser who has really pushed himself to the limits to achieve his goals.
Shane Davis has cycled 750 miles solo, camping out each night, to raise money for Southmead Hospital Charity.
Shane spent two months in ICU at Southmead Hospital, including one month in a coma, battling pancreatitis and pericarditi, and was given just 10% chance of survival by doctors.
We've been really touched by his story and we are so grateful for his support, you can watch some of his brilliant videos of his journey and support his fundraising here.
