On 1st December we’re holding a Sepsis Awareness Day at Sixways, run in partnership with Worcester Warriors Womens.
This exciting event is taking place to raise awareness of the condition after Jemima Moss, a centre for the Warriors Women’s team, developed sepsis in Summer of 2018.
Jemima fell ill in 2018 which what she thought was the ‘flu. She went to bed hoping it would blow over. Little did she know that that the illness she was battling was life-threatening sepsis. Upon collapsing when she tried to get help from her mother, an ambulance was called and Jemima was blue-lighted to Worcester Hospital.
The following weeks saw Jemima fighting for her life in ICU with multiple organ failure. Thankfully she made a full recovery and now she wants to support the Trust by raising awareness, which led to The UK Sepsis Trust becoming the Warriors Womens’ principle shirt sponsor and the inception of the Sepsis Awareness Day at Sixways. Read Jemima’s full story here.
On 1 December The UK Sepsis Trust will be out in force with staff, ambassadors, fundraisers and supporters in a dedicated Sepsis Lounge on the day. Here you can learn more about the Trust’s charitable objectives and fundraising opportunities for 2020. You can also find out about their most recent campaign Schools against Sepsis.
We will also be holding our inaugural Worcester Sepsis Support Group. If you or a loved one has been affected by sepsis, come and join the support team for a chat and a cuppa before the big game. The group will start at at 10am and last approximately 90 minutes. Those who attend the group will receive free entry to the stadium to watch the match.
