Walk For Wards 2015

On Sunday 14th June 2015, the second Walk for Wards took place at Trebah Gardens near Falmouth, raising money for the Royal Cornwall Hospitals Charity.

Walk for Wards is part of a national initiative and at RCHT was used to raise funds for the Royal Cornwall, St Michael’s and West Cornwall hospitals. Walkers can raise money for individual wards, departments or RCHT’s general charitable fund.

The walk was supported by many departments and staff from within the hospital's trust together with local people who were keen to support their local hospital.
