Fundraising by Barclays for Heart Failure Patients
The Barclays team at the Burnley Branch completed a fundraising day in Branch on Wednesday 25th May and on Thursday 26th May 2011 they completed a sponsored walk from Burnley to the Accrington Branch. They dressed up as Willy Wonka and the Umpa Lumpas and in the pouring rain managed to walk the 8 miles completing it in under 3hrs 30 mins with s stop off at a local pub. They also managed to get over 50 honk honks as they travelled through East Lancashire. We will post how much they raised when we find out but Barclays are going to match the money raised £ for £ which is fantastic. Well done!
New 3D Echo Appeal for the Royal Blackburn Cardiology Department
The BHF are supporting and fund raising for a new 3D Echo Cardiogram machine that will enable cardiac consultants to further help heart failure patients in the East Lancs area via the Royal Blackburn Hospital. Pumping Marvellous will be adding that local touch to the campaign and assisting the BHF with it’s target. When we have further details we will do a more concise piece on it but here are some of the photos taken that will be used in the media campaign to build awareness of the cause.
