On 5th July we hosted a charity event to celebrate 70 years of our NHS in true UK Medical style!

The day kicked off with an ambitious target of cycling 70 miles on a static bike whilst keeping the car wash and bake sale running! The Albreda House car park was a hive of activity for the whole day- lots of cars were washed (over 50 we believe) and we sold a lot of cake!

We managed to exceed our cycling target and actually hit the 100 mile mark – not bad for our little team 🙂

Totals are yet to be finalised but we are hoping to have raised over £1500 for the Sheffield Hospitals Charity

We would like to give a massive thanks to all those who supported our event with donations, discounts and advertising – too many to mention but you know who you are 🙂

Here’s to another 70 years of our incredible NHS!
