The wonderful staff based at Falmouth Community hospital got together with patients and organized a Christmas Raffle with Wendy Tape at the helm.
The patients and staff generously donated lots of goodies that enabled the staff to create superb hampers which were then raffled and raised an outstanding sum of £400.00.
On the 22ndFebruary 2019 Cornwall Blood Bike (CBB)volunteers were kindly invited down to a presentation handover at Falmouth Hospital.
CBB Advanced Fleet Bike Rider Brian Reynolds, John Penlerick – CBB Fleet Manager, Jayne Penlerick – CBB PR Media Liaison, were warmly greeted by Wendy and invited onto the ward to meet the patients and learn more about the essential care given by this vital community hospital in providing support to people’s health and wellbeing. All three volunteers thoroughly enjoyed the morning and their tour of this fabulous hospital and the services it strives to provide.
Cornwall Blood Bikes are extremely proud of our dedicated and professional FREE service that we offer to all our hospitals but especially to this vital community hospital operating 5pm – 7am Monday – Friday, and 24 hours weekends and bank holidays
It was estimated in 2018 CBB saved the NHS in Cornwall in excess of £200,00 in taxi’s and couriers.
The cheque was presented to CBB volunteer advanced fleet bike rider Brian Reynolds.
Brian stated “On behalf of Cornwall Blood Bikes we would like to say a heartfelt thank you to all the staff and patients for this outstanding donation that will truly keep our wheels turning, and allow us to continue helping yourselves and other hospitals”
