£2,000 was raised for Pembroke Dock hospital patients by staff who braved a skydive this summer.

Three staff from Sunderland Ward in South Pembrokeshire Hospital braved the charity skydive to raise funds for the ward.

Bex, Tracy and Denise took part in the charity tandem skydive at Skydive Swansea on June 3, 2023. They raised £2,000 for activities for patients on Sunderland Ward, a 40-bed rehabilitation ward.

Rebecca Richards, Clinical Lead Nurse - Community Hospitals Pembrokeshire, said: “The skydive was a fantastic experience for the three staff members from Sunderland Ward.

“I am so glad it was such a sunny day and we were able to reach our target through our JustGiving page and cash donations. We want to say a huge thank you to everyone who supported us.”

Nicola Llewelyn, Head of Hywel Dda Health Charities, said: “The support of our local communities enables us to provide services over and above what the NHS can provide in the three counties of Hywel Dda and we are extremely grateful for every donation we receive.”
