OUR FUNDRAISING


MONEY RAISED

In the past year (January 2016 – July 2017) the League have arranged the following fundraising events:

The Bodmin Wassailers donated the results of their January 2016 Wassail to BHLF: £225 BHLF (Bodmin Hospital League of Friends) supplied refreshments for Snowdrop Sunday at Pencarrow in February 2016 raising around £700 – this included a very generous donation of £500 from Pencarrow from their ‘gate’ collection.

We held a Soup & Dessert lunch at Wadebridge Town Hall, also in Feb 2016, raising around £200.

BHLF were announced as Wadebridge Social Club’s Charity of the year during which they put on three Bingo Sessions, led four walks, had collection tins on their counters and did a Bed Push from Padstow to Wadebridge – by the end of the year they had raised over £4500 for us! A magnificent achievement. 

Sponsored walk from Rock around Polzeath and Roserrow led by Vic Luke of Wadebridge Social Club in March’16 raising £1000 

We joined with the Friends of St Petrocs Church in April ’16 to supply the refreshments, light lunches and teas for Bodmin Nursery Spring Festival raising £1800 shared between the two charities. We are very grateful to Mark and Linda Lawlor, owners of the Nusery, for allowing us to raise funds in this way. 

We have been represented with a stand at Wadebridge WHEELS event for the past 5 years and Wadebridge Rotary Club have been exceedingly generous to the BHLF in that time; in 2016 they donated £1000 to BHLF as a result of the funds raised at WHEELS 

We had an information stand at St Breward Fete in July 2016

We did a Soup & Dessert Lunch in Bodmin Methodist Church in October 2016 raising £304 Sponsored walk in October from Lerryn to St Winnow, led, again by Vic Luke, raised around £300. 

A Fashion Show at M & Co in Bodmin in November 2016 raised nearly £600.

Kate Holland did a cycle ride through Death Valley in Nevada in November 2016 in memory of her father who passed away on Harbour Ward raising £2400 to be shared between BHLF and Macmillan Cancer Care 

We sang carols around the wards, as always, before Christmas, laid a wreath in Bodmin on Remembrance Day and decorated a tree in St Petrocs Church for their Christmas tree festival.

In April 2017 BHLF supplied refreshments, light lunches and teas over the two days for Bodmin Nursery Spring Festival raising around £1,100

In April ’17 another walk was planned from Padstow to Stepper Point and back, led by Vic Luke – the weather was inclement so this was postponed until 23rd July 


And then, of course, our fete, which is held every year in June, is the biggest fundraiser – see under separate heading. 


We have also received several kind donations in memory of loved ones and collections from the many kind businesses who hold collecting tins for us. 


A huge THANK YOU to everyone who has helped and contributed. 


The BHLF committee meet on the first Friday of each month except in August and December and in November the AGM is held on the second Thursday. Committee meetings, apart from the AGM, are held in the Café Lounge at the hospital and commence at 10am when we hold formal talks, discussions about how to raise funds and discuss requests from the wards for funding to purchase equipment and services not supplied by the NHS. In addition, sub committees are formed to arrange many of the events over the year. The Trustees meet three of four times a year. Last year a biannual newsletter was re-instated.
