Clinical Professionals Celebrates Valentine’s Day 2019
The first charity event of the year saw Clinical Professionals raising money for our corporate charity, Bloodwise.
The day featured casual dress with the stipulation of consultants wearing red or pink, a bake sale competition that featured a variety of wonderful home baked goodies, a balloon raffle for numerous prizes such as; classic chick flicks, bubble bath sets and chocolates, guess the sweets in the jar and a valentine’s day card competition.
The offices also competed against each other for vouchers with the aim of smashing current targets.
The Clinical Professionals Group is delighted to announc e that we have raised over £200! A great start to our target of £5k this year!
Bloodwise is the UK’s leading blood cancer research charity, it was first established in 1962 as the Leukaemia Research Fund after the Eastwood’s lost their daughter to Leukaemia in 1960 and decided to take steps to prevent other families from experiencing the same tragedy.
Throughout the years Bloodwise has assisted greatly in progressing treatment for blood cancers, supplying information and support for patients and their families and their research has often gone on to improve other cancer treatments. Bloodwise made headline news end of last year when it was announced that the CAR-T cell therapy would be made available on the NHS in England for adult lymphoma patients, a decision where Bloodwise was one of the patient organisations to be consulted in NICE’s appraisal process.
The Clinical Professionals Group look forward to having a wide variety of charity fund raising events throughout the year.
