A REMARKABLE pub landlady has left intensive care after more than three months.

Donna Morgan was sent to intensive care with coronavirus in the middle of March and had to be put into an induced coma.

Meanwhile her husband Toby Morgan launched the Come on Donna campaign, raising more than £100,000 for St Richard’s Hospital in Chichester where she was being treated.

The couple have been in charge of the Victoria Inn pub in the hamlet of West Marden, on the Sussex border with Hampshire.

Supported by their customers, Donna took her first steps out of St Richard’s on Thursday, which was also her birthday, with dozens there to greet her after her 92-day battle.

An emotional video was shared by Western Sussex NHS Trust which showed Donna’s first steps from the hospital.

The hospital said: “This is Donna Morgan, the longest staying patient at Western Sussex NHS Trust, leaving St Richard’s after receiving 92 days of life-saving care for Covid-19.

“Despite all her challenges, Donna wanted to stand up herself and applaud the NHS staff and walk out of the hospital to meet loved ones who have supported her, including her faithful pooches Gin and Tonic.

“By her side was devoted husband Toby who fundraised tirelessly to thank intensive care staff.

“Donna can now go home and join her family as she continues her recovery.”

As she left the hospital Donna was given a guard of honour by applauding NHS staff while outside, she was greeted by cheering crowds with signs which read: “We love you Donna.”

She has been running the Victoria Inn since 2011 with husband Toby, and previously worked as a member of front of house staff at Goodwood.

Toby previously described how she had been fit and healthy, but developed coronavirus symptoms then started having difficulty breathing.

He dialled the NHS 111 service and Donna was taken into hospital, where her battle began.

Toby has since been busy galvanising public support for Donna and the hospital.

Funds from the “Come on Donna” campaign will be used to create a holistic service to help staff, patients and families affected by Covid-19 at the hospital.

Toby said the fundraising has “snowballed” with donations also being made to care homes, ambulance stations, GP surgeries and schools.
