Family affected by stroke gives back to the QEH

A family affected by stroke has raised over £3400 for The Queen Elizabeth Hospital’s stroke unit.

Stuart Beaumont, father to two, suffered from a stroke a year and a half ago and was treated by the West Raynham stroke team.

Thankful for the care he received, Stuart’s wife, Emma, was inspired to fundraise for the unit as a way to give back.

Alongside her colleagues from Flix Hair Design, Donna Fuller and Sarah Hewitt, Emma arranged auctions, raffles and bake sales throughout the year to accumulate £3442.10 for the cause.

Stuart and his family were welcomed back onto the hospital’s stroke ward, West Raynham, with open arms, with many staff members excited to see them and impressed with Stuart’s progress.

The Beaumont’s’ presented the cheque from the yearlong appeal to Jane Veall, Speech & Language Therapist, Tracey Fairburn, Healthcare Assistant and Scott Ablett, Physiotherapist, who played a big part in Stuart’s recovery journey.

Emma Beaumont, Stuart’s wife, said: “We can’t fault the unit, thank you so much for everything you have done for Stuart and our family.”

“I would like to say thank you to everyone who has donated and a special thank you to Hugh Williamson, Felicity Williamson and Jennifer Hammond, who asked for donations towards the appeal rather than having birthday presents this year.”
