Thank you to generous Wincanton customers!
2020 was a very difficult year in terms of fundraising for our chosen charities, as we were unable to hold any special events as we usually do. However, customers were still able to donate to collecting tins in the garden centre.
So we’d like to give a heartfelt thank you to our Wincanton customers who helped the branch raise over £430 for the Yeovil Freewheelers charity.
As an emergency volunteer service, Yeovil Freewheelers supports Yeovil District Hospital, Dorset County Hospital and the community hospitals across the region by providing emergency courier services for blood, platelets, blood and tissue samples, medication, breast milk, documents, X rays, CT scans, and equipment.
The service operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, saving the NHS around £200,000 a year while easing patients’ suffering and helping to save lives.
The charity receives no funding from either national or local government relying instead on donors, sponsors, businesses and individuals.
Our Wincanton branch has supported the charity for several years and has decided to continue supporting Yeovil Freewheelers during 2021. If you would like to make your own donation visit: https://www.yfwbloodbikes.org/
