We’re thanking a local charity and businesses for helping patients have a cracking Easter after shelling out for kind donations of Easter eggs.
Bloodrun EVS was established in 2010 to provide a free, voluntary courier service to local hospitals. Long-time supporters of our Trust, the Bloodrun crew provide vital transportation of blood for patients, 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week.
The kind-hearted egg-spert bikers have been revving their engines as they scrambled around the streets, but without taking any whisks, collecting donations of Easter eggs from local businesses which they dropped off today (Saturday 8 April) at the University Hospital of Hartlepool and University Hospital of North Tees.
Ken Bayne from Bloodrun EVS said: “It’s that time of the year again. And the communities and businesses we serve have been busy donating Easter eggs for people in hospital over Easter.
“Our volunteers are excited to be getting back on their bikes once again to deliver the eggs.
“We hope it brightens up the day for the patients.”
Lorraine Garbutt, play specialist on the children’s ward, said: “We can’t thank the top yolk at Bloodrun enough. They just can’t be beat.
“Over the past few years, they’ve become an essential part of the team that provides great support for our patients. And they aren’t just a local charity, they’re part of the Trust family.
“We know the Easter eggs will put smiles on a lot of faces this weekend, even if they may need to do a little eggs-ercise to work them off.”
