Charity Fundraising

 

Winsley Dispensary 10th Anniversary

On the 4th April it will be the 10th anniversary of the Winsley Health Centre opening the dispensary. This important addition to the Health Centre gives our patients who live in Winsley and the surrounding villages a convenient and friendly way to obtain their prescriptions.

Please join us in celebrating this event with fun competitions being run. Come in between 3rd and 11th April and try to win a prize by guessing the name of the Winsley teddy who has been observing proceedings in the dispensary since it opened or guess the Doctors/staff baby photos. All donations will go towards the Winsley village Defib fund.

There will also be past and present dispensary focused displays on the noticeboards for the month of April.

The partners and staff would like to thank you for your support over the last 10 years, as this facility wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for you.

Women V Cancer - Cycle Africa 2015 - Team BoA:sonia

Donations for Team BoA have now reached an amazing £11,877.

Day 1 Ride Moshi to Olpopongi was 53 miles, with a 2,525ft elevation gain and was rough, rocky, and a mix of off road and tarmac. Rode through thick deep mud, bikes were getting stuck, people were falling off and it finally got so dark we had to be escorted by one of our minibuses to the Maasai camp where we were staying.

Day 2 Took us to Arusha, riding on horrendous rocky roads, extremely hot (44c) and an elevation gain of 2,666ft and 52 miles.  We finished our day Cycling onto the bustling town of Arusha.

Day 3 Took us to Zion camp near Tarangire national park, longest ride of the week - 66.2 miles - but fast roads and fabulous riding - morale lifted and everyone happy again! Visited a Maasai school where we delivered 3 big sacks of gifts donated by all of us - pens, pencils toothbrushes, school bags etc. The children sang for us and then we sang the hokey cokey, which they loved, and we had to keep singing it while they copied us!

Day 4 cycled to Lake Manyara National Park, straight fast road, 50 miles, elevation gain of just 743ft.This morning’s cycle was on smooth tarmac roads until lunchtime and then we came off road which took us pass cotton fields and sugar cane and rice fields. As we entered deeper into the Rift Valley we passed several small villages and the roads became a lot bumpier with lots of deep sand !!! We then eventually took a bus ride to our lodge.

Day 5 Mto Wa Mbu - Ngorongoro Crater - just the 27.7 miles today but an elevation gain of 4,444ft! It was very tough, but amazing and the finish was just an extraordinary experience and I wouldn’t have missed it for anything.

In total we rode 250 miles (400 kms) and the total elevation gain was 12,342 ft. Only 20 of us out of 85 cycled the entire 250 miles.

Total raised so far by our group (3 more groups to ride) is £275,000 and in total over 5 years Women v Cancer has raised £6.5 million.

Whilst we were riding for 5 days 800 women would have been diagnosed with one of the 3 cancers that we are raising funds for.

Donations for Team BoA have now reached an amazing £11,877.

Thank you all for support and generosity.
