Two Nottingham nurses are taking on the Robin Hood Half Marathon this September in aid of Nottingham Hospitals Charity’s Hayward House Appeal

Jennie Warrior and Juta Kirby, who are both nurses at Hayward House palliative care centre at Nottingham City Hospital, are taking part in the running challenge to raise money for the patients and families they care for.

Both have raised money for Hayward House previously through a whole host of events, including our Big QMC Abseil.

Jennie said: “I'm passionate about my nursing job and wanted to help contribute towards the Hayward House Appeal. I feel it is so important to make our environment even better for our patients, which will help them receive quality care and create special memories when they approach the end of their life. 

“I've wanted to increase my running distance for a while now and thought the Robin Hood Half Marathon would be an ideal opportunity. I'm feeling excited but a bit nervous about doing the half marathon!”

Juta said: “I am really looking forward to the Robin Hood Half Marathon and really hope many friends and colleagues will come to support us on the day. We are raising money for Hayward House as it would improve our patients’ and their families’ experience in their most difficult time.”

Charity Stow, Community Fundraiser at Nottingham Hospitals Charity, said: “We’re so pleased that Juta and Jennie are taking on the Robin Hood Half Marathon in aid of the Hayward House Appeal.

“It’s such a testament to their dedication that they not only work hard every day to care for patients and families at Hayward House, but they have also chosen to use their free time to train and run the half marathon to support them further. Jennie and Juta are quite literally going the extra mile for their patients, and we are so grateful to them.”
