Members of #teamqueenscourt complete Wadi Rum Desert Trek
Community | 26 January 2023
In November 2022 our very own Shorna Warren (Senior Speciality Doctor) and Kristina Ackers (Ward Sister) trekked the Wadi Rum Desert for Queenscourt in this totally unique self-funded challenge of a lifetime.
Not only did they walk for up to 8 hours a day for 6 consecutive days in temperatures as high as 35 degrees, they raised an absolutely amazing £8,219
After trekking through rocky corridors, deep canyons and stones stairs by day, Shorna and Kristina then slept in tents each night alongside desert scorpions, vipers amongst other critters.
After returning to the UK the ladies were straight back to work and it’s not been easy to track them down they’ve been so busy.
We wanted to take a moment to say a huge thank you to Shorna & Kristina and to share some of their pictures to show what a fantastic challenge they have been on.
It really is true what they day, not all superheroes wear capes. We are so lucky that we have some working at Queenscourt wearing their Doctors and Nurses uniforms everyday!
