A match day collection held when the Cornish Pirates recently played Bedford Blues at the Mennaye Field, raised the sum of £540.71 for Cornwall Blood Bikes.

The collection was not only worthy financially but also provided an important opportunity to raise awareness of what Cornwall Blood Bikes do, as a charity, supporting NHS partners to deliver essential Whole Blood, Pathology Samples, Medication, Medical Equipment, Medical Notes and occasionally Donor Breast Milk to the NHS hospitals and hospices throughout Cornwall and beyond.

Speaking on behalf of Cornwall Blood Bikes, Jayne Penlerick said:

We are a group of self-funding volunteers who rely entirely on the generosity of the community, with every penny collected going back into the charity. Last year the bikes covered 90,000 miles in Cornwall alone and completed 2,000 operational jobs, likely saving the NHS more than £175,000.

Jayne added:

Having the opportunity to collect on a Cornish Pirates match day was greatly appreciated. The supporters were so generous, and our collectors, including helpers from The Rotary Club of Penzance, were all made most welcome.
