SERV Suffolk & Cambridgeshire is celebrating its 10th Anniversary!
The charity was established in 2011 by Bev Lambert from Alderton near Woodbridge. With a large number of biker-friends willing to join the group, the service started with Ipswich Hospital, shortly followed by the West Suffolk in Bury St Edmunds and then the Cambridgeshire hospitals of Peterborough City Hospital, Hinchingbrooke and Papworth.
Since then, the charity has grown substantially.
Chairman Cindy Dickerson said, “It is so important to us that we have support from those we deliver to as well as our local communities. A service that started out to help our local hospitals transport urgently needed blood products out of hours has grown significantly. We are grateful and appreciate all those who have willingly helped us along the way either as volunteers or as supporters who have donated. They have helped save the NHS hundreds of thousands of pounds allowing those funds to be diverted where they are needed most.”
To mark the occasion, we have released a video about what we do and are planning a Celebration Charity Dinner. Having thrived as an organisation during the last 12-18 very challenging months, we are looking forward to what the next 10 years and beyond brings as we continue to offer our service 24 hours a day, every day.
