One Broker Celebrates Blood Bike Groups on Appreciation Day
Members of the One Broker group, which One Guarantee is a part of, have continued their efforts to raise awareness and funds for local charities, SERV Norfolk and SERV Suffolk & Cambridgeshire. Staff from across the group celebrated the fantastic work the organisations carry out by hosting an Appreciation Day which involved staff raising money with an office Bake Sale and learning more about the charities through Fun Fact posters.
Known as the Blood Bikes, SERV Norfolk and SERV Suffolk & Cambridgeshire provide blood and medical product transport services to hospitals around East Anglia to ease the strain on NHS resources. The One Broker group has been a supporter of SERV Norfollk and SERV Suffolk & Cambridgeshire since June last year and has since raised over £2400 for the charities. In addition, this Spring staff have taken part in a host of activities to raise awareness and more donations for the organisation. These have included taking part in an Easter Treasure Hunt, attending presentations conducted by volunteers from the charities and raising money through the Appreciation Day.
Henry Plaster, Broking Technician at One Guarantee, commented "We’re proud to support two wonderful charities that do such good for our local communities. Without SERV Norfolk and SERV Suffolk & Cambridgeshire, the NHS would be spending thousands of pounds on expensive courier services or using emergency vehicles to transport basic medical products. Instead these products are delivered by free to hospitals by unpaid Blood Bike volunteers who are the true heroes of our time".
