Thanks for taking the time to read this. As the wife of the PhysioNet Chairman, I’m raising money to pay for a shipment of vital medical equipment and humanitarian goods for PhysioNet to send to Ukraine.

On Sunday 19th May I will be walking 26 miles from Pateley Bridge to Angram Dam and back on the Nidderdale Walk & Run, organised by the Rotary Club of Harrogate. The walk is just four days after my 75th birthday so this walk will also be a birthday celebration and, at this age, I have set myself a challenge!

Since the invasion of Ukraine, and in addition to our regular shipments, PhysioNet has sent fourteen 55′ artics of vital supplies into the country. Funding to do this has declined recently as other humanitarian crises take precedence in the news media, but life in Ukraine is as desperate now as ever. Goods are still urgently needed.

Please donate as much as you can by going to and use the Giving link on the home page. On the message option, please put Ukraine Shipment. Your donations will go straight into the PhysioNet bank account avoiding the commission taken by internet fundraising platforms, and you can use Gift Aid to increase your donation by 25% if you are a UK taxpayer.
