Nurse Feathers's Story

Nurse Feathers has been a Sue Ryder nurse for many years. After seeing the difference the charity’s care made to a close relative, they quit their job as a roller-skating courier, to commit to a life helping the cause.

A veteran of many fund-raising races, Nurse Feathers is only too happy to once again don roller-skates, while squawking legendary catchphrase, `they need me … I’d better get me skates on`. Nurse Feathers credits the miles walked every day on the wards as key to beak-physical conditioning and they remain one of the bravest, most resilient nurses to ever grace a hospice.

Nurse Feathers is 110% committed to raising as much money as is turkey-ly possible. The only thing standing in the way of skating to victory, is if a competitor should fall over. In such an event, Nurse Feathers dedication and duty to care will instinctively overtake any thoughts of personal glory.

About Sue Ryder

Sue Ryder provides hospice and neurological care for people facing a frightening, life-changing diagnosis. It’s not just expert medical care we provide. It’s the emotional support and practical things we take care of too. We do whatever we can to be a safety net for our patients and their loved ones.

Not only do we treat more conditions than any other UK charity in our hospices, neurological care centres and out in the community; we also influence others to improve the lives of people living with them. We see the person, not the condition, taking time to understand the small things that help that person live the fullest life they can.

One in four of us is affected by conditions such as cancer, heart failure, acquired brain injury, multiple sclerosis, Huntington’s disease and motor neurone disease. Whether it’s volunteering, running a fundraising event or making a donation, we need your support so we can be there for people at the most difficult time of their lives.
