The NHS is facing its biggest challenge in 72 years. Staff at our sites including Tunbridge Wells Hospital and Maidstone Hospital are on the front line in the fight against coronavirus (COVID-19). They're going the extra mile, every day, to take care of us and our loved ones despite being under extreme pressure.

They need our support more than ever. Individuals and clubs have embraced sporting activities over the few months such football, cycling, walking and running as well as exercises including ‘burpees’, to help raise money. Here’s a taster of some of the fundraisers:

Franco Minieingri, from Snodland, raised £2,250 after he cycled 577 miles in a month. Tonbridge Juddians Under 14s rugby team collectively completed more than 25,000 burpees to raise over £1,000 shared between MTW and Wooden Spoon, the children’s charity of rugby.

Under 13’s West Kent Football Squad raised an incredible £1,451 after players, coaches and parents were set a challenge to run a 70 mile virtual route which started in Tunbridge Wells and end at the Olympic Park in London.
