Hampstead Heath Autumn Walk Raises in Excess of £4,000 – On Saturday, November 4th, the Neuro team from St. George’s Hospital united for an 8-mile, heart-warming walk through the scenic Hampstead Heath Park, marking their 3rd annual walk.
They managed to complete their walk, but unfortunately, due to the weather, they had last-minute cancellations, resulting in a smaller turnout compared to our previous walk. The conditions were challenging—wet, cold, muddy, and slippery. However, everyone had a great time and a strong sense of accomplishment. Despite feeling exhausted and in pain, they all managed to smile at the end.
These meaningful journeys are not just about distance; they are about bringing hope, one step at a time, raising vital funds for The John King Brain Tumour Foundation Charity, which over the last two years has been raising funds to create the John King ‘Forest in the Sky’ Garden.
Adjacent to the Neuro Intensive Care Unit, the garden will offer a restful space for critical care patients, carers, and loved ones at what can be an extremely difficult and traumatic time. By reacquainting patients with the outside world, it can also help hugely with rehabilitation. The garden will be situated on the first floor of the Atkinson Morley Unit, immediately accessible from the Neuro ICU, to benefit the well-being and recovery of an estimated 7,000 patients, visitors, staff, and therapists each year.
We kindly ask that you consider making a donation as your contribution, regardless of its size, will have a profound impact on the lives of our patients, their loved ones and our dedicated staff.

The garden is due to be completed in 2024, your support will ensure that the Forest in the Sky Garden benefits generations to come. Together, we can create a space of hope, healing, and resilience.
