Charity golf day to raise funds for community respiratory team

Ryan Donaldson, a respiratory assistant practitioner with Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust, is taking part in a golf challenge at Lincoln Golf Club on Sunday, 28 June to raise funds for the team he works with, the Northwest Community Respiratory Team.

The challenge involves playing 72 holes over four rounds all in one day. This will indeed be a tough challenge, but one that Ryan is more than happy to face in order to raise money to help provide additional resources for his team and his patients.

The Community Respiratory Team offers a range of specialist services that supply oxygen to patients in the community along with pulmonary rehabilitation and respiratory physiotherapy for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and heart failure.

Ryan said:

“Lincoln Golf Club has been an avid fundraiser for the NHS, and currently has the 18th as the NHS hole. They continue to be a great support for myself and the NHS.

“Half of the funds raised will go towards equipment for the respiratory services so we can continue to provide excellent specialist care. The other half of the funds will be used for team building, so we can have time away from the workplace to recharge, go for a day out, enjoy an activity, or dine out together as a team. There is a lot of fundraising for the NHS at the moment which is fantastic, any money raised through the golf day will make a direct difference to the people who provide a pivotal service in our county.

“You will be aware that the last few months have been very challenging for the NHS and our service, myself and colleagues. Coronavirus has brought the best out of us as a trust, team and individually with many team members being redeployed to hospital settings, to care for patients with this horrific virus.”
