Our Ware & District Branch look back on a successful 2015!

With Christmas just around the corner, we look back on all that's happened in the past year here at Bloodwise.

As always, our Branches have worked tirelessly in our mission to beat blood cancer and have helped us in so many ways from holding events to collections as well as engaging with their local communities up and down the country. 

This week we had a catch up with our Ware & District Branch to hear about all they have been up to in 2015. The members of the Branch managed to secure 7 fundraising collections in their area during the year including Hoddesdon Street Collection and a collection at the Van Hage Garden Centre in Ware.

The collections as a whole, together with various donations given during the year, raised over £3,700, with the latest, and most festive collection, taking place at the Howard Centre in Welwyn Garden City on 28 November raising an astonishing £945! 

A special thanks goes to all those who hosted our Branch for their collections (Tesco stores in Ware, Hertford and Stevenage, Sainsbury's London Colney store, Broxbourne Council, Van Hage Garden Centre and the Howard Centre) and a VERY special thank you to the Flute Cocktail, who accompanied the Branch in their Sainsbury's and Howard Centre collections, which combined, raised more than 60% of their total this year! 

However there is no rest planned for the busy Branch as they already have the next date in their diaries and will be returning to Tesco in Stevenage on Friday 29th January 2016, so please do pop along and show your support if you are in the area.
