Big hearted firms rev it up with sports day for Severn Freewheelers blood bikers

Worcester Editorial 15th Aug, 2023   0

A CHARITY sports day organised by BCRS Business Loans and Kendall Wadley LLP has raised more than £2,000 for the Severn Freewheelers blood bike charity.

More than 80 people from 13 businesses and organisations across the region attended the event, at Nunnery Wood Sports Complex in Spetchley Road, Worcester.

Competing in teams of six, attendees enjoyed a fun afternoon of classic sports day races including an egg and spoon race, tug-o’-war and ‘welly wanging’, as well as a big group Zumba session. Each team donated £60 to take part in the event and Barclays matched donations up to £1,000.

Angie Preece from BCRS Business Loans who organised the event, said: “This year’s sports day event was a huge success. Not only was it great fun, but it was an excellent opportunity for businesses to network with others in the region.

“The Severn Freewheelers Emergency Voluntary Service does some incredibly important lifesaving work, so we are really pleased that our fundraising is able to support them.

“Thank you to our event co-host Kendall Wadley LLP, who helped organise the day. We are thrilled with the support that local companies have shown for our event and hope to see them again next year.”

Severn Freewheelers Emergency Voluntary Service is a blood bike charity based in the Severn Valley in western England. A group of advanced motorists provide a free out-of-hours courier service to transport blood and essential medical items between NHS facilities in Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Gloucestershire and north Wiltshire.

Organisations that took part in the sports day were: BLB Advisory, Clay GBP, Crowe, Currie Young Insolvency & Restructuring, Handelsbanken, Harrison Clark Rickerbys Ltd, Higgs LLP, Kendall Wadley LLP, Leonard Curtis, Sinclair Day Accountancy, Thursfields Solicitors and Worcestershire Growth Hub.
