Staff at the Kingthorne Practice have abseiled, zip-wired and tumbled their way to raising over £3,500 for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Jessop’s Hospital in Sheffield.
On 28 October 2005, Kate Green gave birth to daughter, Phoebe. Due to complications during labour, the little girl experienced severe brain damage and was transferred to Jessop Hospital’s Neonatal Unit where she passed away seven weeks later surrounded by her loving family.
To mark Phoebe’s tenth birthday, Kate, alongside friends, family and colleagues at the Kingthorne Practice, completed the Triple Whammy at Magna in Rotherham, raising £3,513 for the Neonatal Unit which cared for Phoebe.
To finish the Triple Whammy, participants have to whizz across a 250ft zip-wire, abseil 150ft to the ground and finally, simulate a parachute jump by taking a 150ft leap of faith with only a high-powered fan to aid in the fall.
Known as Phoebe’s Angels, the group were sponsored by friends, families and colleagues to undertake the challenge and mark the birthday of a very special little girl.
