Family raises over £2,000 for Withybush Hospital

Seren Cole and her family have raised a fantastic £2,640 for Hywel Dda Health Charities, the official charity of the Hywel Dda University Health Board.


After falling critically ill in December 2022 and receiving treatment for pneumonia, streptococcus A, influenza and sepsis, Seren set up a GoFundMe page with her family to raise funds for the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), the Acute Clinical Decision Unit (ACDU) and Same Day Emergency Care (SDEC) at Withybush Hospital.


Seren said: “The continued care and dedication of the staff at Withybush General Hospital is the reason I am still here today, and nothing could ever express the depth of our gratitude.


“Hopefully, the funds and gifts will go towards providing some well-earned respite for staff and comfort for patients.”

Katy Coates, Senior Sister on ACDU, said: “On behalf of all the units we would like to say a huge thank you to Seren and her family and friends for raising money and purchasing items to support patients and staff on the units. It was very kind of you and much appreciated by us all.”
