Meet our caring and very very brave nurse Emma, who will be jumping out a plane next Saturday for St Luke’s.
Having only joined St Luke’s six months ago as a nurse on our specialist unit at Turnchapel, Emma is keen to get stuck in and raise some cash for patient care.
“It’s something I have always wanted to do and when I heard that St Luke’s organise regular Skydives, I jumped at the chance” said Emma.
“The most daring thing I have ever done is go in a helicopter and skiing, so this is jumping in at the deep end”.
Emma commutes every day from St Austell to St Luke’s “I’ve always had an interest in end of life care, since my Uni days. When I left Uni I went to work in a community hospital in Cornwall to get some general nursing experience, but when the post came up at St Luke’s it was a dream job for me. Hospice care is a very rewarding area to work in and I feel privileged to spend time with people at end of life”
Emma has already raised £500. If you would like to show her your support, check out her fundraising page.
