Fundraising for #KevsWheels

The Smith family are raising money towards new wheelchairs for our hospitals.

On Easter Sunday, Kevin Smith, a beloved Plaster Technician at Doncaster Royal Infirmary, sadly passed away at the hospital, following treatment for Covid-19.

The following is taken from their Just Giving page, created by wife Diane:

Kev loved his job and the people he worked with and from the number of tributes there have been in response to his death it has become obvious he in turn was a much-loved and respected member of staff.

Kev himself spent many years in plaster due to a congenital abnormality of his lower leg and in 1982 took the decision to have his leg amputated, so from a very early age he knew exactly what it was like to experience mobility problems. It was with this in mind that I have decided to ask for donations in memory of Kev and put the money raised towards the cost of new wheelchairs for DBTH. Kev was always complaining he could never find chairs for patients and when he did they had a mind of their own.

The fundraising goal is £5,000 so if you wish to donate in memory of a much-loved and missed member of our team, please head to:
