Family and friends raise money for hospital iPads in memory of Danny
Family and friends of firefighter Danny Granger who sadly died last week, have set up a Go Fund Me page to raise money to buy iPads and holders for the Addenbrookes intensive care unit.
The fundraising page, which has already reached over £1,200, has been set up in Danny’s memory to help families of those in the critical wards see and speak to their loved ones while visiting is restricted.
Danny’s close friend and colleague at Cottenham Fire Station, Matt Scruby, has set up the page on behalf of Danny’s family.
Matt explained: “Danny received the best care at Addenbrookes intensive care unit. The doctors and nurses were amazing and so compassionate. The current restrictions in place due to Covid mean that families cannot visit loved ones in the hospital so they had to reply on the nurses video-calling so they could see and speak to them. However the hospital struggles with enough iPads so nurses were kindly using their own phones.
“Danny’s mother and sister would like to raise enough money to buy several iPads for the hospital to help others see and speak to patients in the unit. Danny was always doing things for other people and we think he would feel really proud to know that he will be continuing to help others in this way.”
