On the morning of Saturday 22nd July the Charity was invited to meet members of the Nanstallon Methodist Group for a cheque presentation of £700 to the Blood Bikes that the group has been collecting over the year through various events such as Coffee Mornings. We were invited to the Group some weeks ago to share their Songs of Praise evening and gave the congregation a talk on the Charities function, what we do and how we do it.
Saturday morning was a coffee morning and an ideal time to meet more people. The cheque was presented by Beryl Trebilcock and Joy. I stupidly forgot to ask the ladies name sitting on the bike but she was on it within seconds.
I stayed for a little while for a coffee and a chat and to answer questions with abit more detail. There is always that chance that the talks and time spent explaining things will inspire others to raise money and get involved. It’s still staggering, the look on people’s faces when they discover what we do and that it’s for free.
This Charity will always make every effort to meet people who fundraise for it and discourage donations being sent by post.
