“PASSIONATE, tireless and exceptionally hard-working” – they are just a few of the comments about the Love Your Hospital charity which has been nominated in our Community Stars Awards.

The charity, which raises awareness and fund-raises for Worthing, Southlands and St Richard’s hospitals, has received many nominations in the Best Charity category.

The charity’s latest campaign target for Worthing Hospital is to raise £1million to build a second cardiac catheterization lab.

Many nominations also praised Tina Ellis, community and fund-raising manager for the charity, whose fund-rasing efforts led to the opening of a new children’s A & E ward at Worthing Hospital.

Nominators gushed about her exceptional hard work and passion for the charity.

Shelley Stoner, of Bowness Road, Sompting, said: “Tina works exceptionally hard trying to raise awareness about the charity and the work she does enables our local hospital to have some wonderful facilities that simply would not exist if not for the charity.”

Not only has the charity been nominated for an award but Tina herself has received a nomination for a Star of the Community award.

Tina said it was a lovely surprise to be nominated.

She said: “I am really chuffed to pieces. It’s fantastic, for once, I’m speechless.

“I love working for the charity. It is close to my heart because health affects everyone in the community.”
