“On behalf of Fulwood Hall Hospital, I would like to thank all those who have supported our fundraising efforts. Without your support, our cheque for £2,417.49 to 'Defying Dementia would not have been possible. It was an absolute pleasure to raise funds for such a worthy cause as the Defying Dementia charity and I am so proud of what we have achieved. Fulwood Hall Hospital is committed to charitable giving and I am pleased to announce that this year's chosen charity is North West Blood Bikes, a charity which provides a much needed out of hours service to the health industry."
Local charity - North West Blood Bikes (Lancashire & Lakes) is a non-profit making charity which provides an out of hours service to the NHS to transport lifesaving medical supplies to hospitals in our region. The charity receives no central funding or payment for its services and relies solely on fundraising and sponsorship.
