£6000 spent on examination couches and occupational therapy equipment for the Sungai Petani hospital in Malaysia. A huge help for the staff and to the benefit of 12,000 patients a year.

Jane and Jack

Jane a former pupil of Christ’s Hospital School, Lincoln, set off on a cycling holiday with boyfriend Jack up the Malaysian Peninsula, following voluntary work in Kuala Lumpur.

Just north of Penang in Kedah, she was hit from behind by a car, thrown off her bike, and seriously injured. Taken to the local hospital at Sungai Petani she was saved by the excellent care and has made a full recovery.

To acknowledge this her family decided on a donation to the hospital. In support, two local Rotary Clubs Lindum and Colonia supported by International District 1070 Foundation Grant together with the Bandar Sungai Petani Rotary Club raised over £6000 which has now been spent on examination couches and occupational therapy equipment for the hospital. A huge help for the staff and to the benefit of 12,000 patients a year.

Jane now lives in Brighton, and her experience has been life changing in that she is now studying to become a physiotherapist.
