On Wednesday 28th September 2016, we hosted, alongside Maypole Court Cafe & Bistro, a fundraising evening for Multiple Sclerosis and Shropshire Staffordshire Blood bikes. We would like to thank our Lady Mayor for attending this special evening, of which raised £336 for both special charities. The evening was enjoyed by our ladies in a warm, intimate atmosphere, where four different types of treatments were offered. Canapes and Prosecco appeared to be appreciated by all!
Not to exclude the wonderful raffle prizes that were won by lucky winners, of course we could not have held our raffle without the kind generous donations, of which we would like to thank our local businesses, so a very special "thank you" to :
The Fruitful Deli
Raven Cafe, Whitchurch

The MS Society comprises of a community of people living with MS, scientists, campaigners, volunteers and fundraisers.
Multiple Sclerosis is a neurological condition; around 100,000 people in the UK are affected. MS is different for everyone, but symptoms can include fatigue, vision problems or difficulty walking.
Ways to manage MS include drug treatments, diet, exercise and complimentary therapy and alternative therapies.
There are local branches in Shrewsbury and Telford.
An emergency volunteer service providing emergency transportation of blood products, for free, to NHS hospitals across Shropshire, Staffordshire and South Cheshire.
Currently hospitals within Shropshire and Staffordshire have to call a local taxi company to collect and deliver the blood. The hospital would then be charged retail rates for this "service", which can cost between £200-300 per trip.
SSBB transport a variety of other urgent medical items in addition to blood products, including breast milk (which is donated by women and used to feed premature babies). This is achieved using temperature controlled boxes attached to our bikes. Furthermore, we are also open to transporting other urgent items such as patient notes, electronic scan information and even small pieces of urgently needed surgical equipment.Back
