Charity Roadtrippers set off from Worthing Hospital on their challenge to raise awareness of Wolfram Syndrome

A TEAM of seasoned ‘charity roadtrippers’ took on a new challenge spanning four countries and 40 counties, to raise awareness of a rare genetic condition.

Starting at Worthing Hospital, twelve experienced drivers visited 26 major children’s hospitals across the United Kingdom, covering 1600 miles, in 52 hours and 35 minutes – smashing their 60 hour target.

The aim of the trip was to present senior hospital managers at every location, with medical information packs specifically written for the many departments that may treat a child with Wolfram Syndrome.
