A hospital nurse with a “heart of gold” has died while climbing one of Britain’s highest mountains.
Colleagues have paid tribute to 30-year-old Ade Ajayi, who died on Monday June 6 while climbing Mount Snowdon in North Wales.
Ade, a trainee nurse with the rehabilitation team at Montagu Hospital in Mexborough, South Yorkshire, “could brighten up a room,” the heartbroken staff said.
In a statement, the NHS Trust of Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals said: “Ade joined Team DBTH in 2019 and was a well-loved and well-respected member of the team at Rehab 1 at Montagu Hospital.
“As a Trainee Nursing Associate he always put his patients first and embodied everything that is good about the NHS.
“We have no doubt that he would have had a long and fruitful career with the Trust and changed so many.
“Colleagues describe Ade as someone who has a heart of gold, is fun to work with and can light up a room.
“They say Ade always showed boundless compassion when dealing with individuals and was a confidante and friend to so many.
Simply put, he will be missed so much by all who knew but will always be remembered.’
No further details about Ade’s death were released.
An online fundraiser has been set up to support his family and cover funeral expenses, with friends promising to join Snowdon in his memory.
Richard Reasbeck, who set up the crowdfunding page, said: “Anyone who knew Ade knows he was always the life of the party, someone who told it like it was and wasn’t scared.
“He was a great friend, partner, son and brother and will never be forgotten.”
