As we looked to the future with our new name it was also a time to reflect on an amazing 50 years of fund raising for Bloodwise Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre. Members old and new, some of whom have been in the branch since day one, along with supporters gathered for a day of reminiscing and catching up to celebrate.
Each member of the branch was presented with a fantastic commerative picture showing events from 1965 and the prices of the day by Fundraising Director Mark Wilson in recognition of this fantastic achievement.
Since the branch's inception well over £630,000 has been raised from so many different fundraising activities from mainstays over the years such as the Morecambe Bay Walk, Ivy and Eric's Sequence Dance and then recent events such as 83 year old Alan's Disco Bounce and the Old Boys Tour de Yorkshire.
