Charity News

H5 has been busy on the charity front:

  • We made a donation to the Neonatal Unit at the Lister Hospital in Stevenage, enabling them to purchase 12 sets of headphones that allow parents of babies in the Unit's care to remain in the Unit and have medical consultations in private without having to ask other parents/adults to leave the Unit temporarily
  • Bangers organised a 3-staged walk between Wendover and Dunstable with distances suitable for walkers of different stamina: 5, 10 and 15 miles. Walkers raised a grand total of £435 for the Sue Ryder St John's Hospice at Moggerhanger

Our thanks to all those who contributed.

Our cake-bakers continue to raise money for their chosen charities. A minimum contribution of 50p per piece of cake eaten is suggested. Drop your cash into the big red money box brought to most runs.
