The 52-year-old, who has run the Victoria Inn pub in West Marden, West Sussex, alongside her husband Toby Morgan since 2011, fell unwell with the virus in mid-March. She was rushed to St Richard’s Hospital in West Sussex and was put into an induced coma. During the weeks she spent in intensive care, Toby launched a fundraising drive that has seen him raise more than £110,000 for the hospital so far – read more here. Funds from the ‘Come on Donna’ campaign will be used to develop a holistic service for staff, patients and families affected by Covid-19 at the hospital – find out more here. Today, after 92 days, staff clapped and cheered as Donna was discharged from the hospital, while friends and family waited outside to greet her with applause and banners.
