Include Us In Your Celebrations
Are you getting married but already have too many toasters?
Is it your birthday but simply don’t know what to ask for?
Are you organising an event to say welcome home to a loved one following care or treatment they have received?
Geri Palfreeman and her husband Paul asked for donations to the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit in lieu of presents at their wedding recently. Geri, who had a transplant in the unit in 2010 is now back to full health and wanted to say thank you for the care she received.
"The BMT staff in the unit and in the outpatients clinic are a brilliant team - warm, dedicated and highly skilled. We deeply appreciate what they have done (and still do) for me and we want to contribute to the amazing work that takes place there for the benefit of so many."
Geri and Paul have raised over £800 for the unit. Geri was one of the first to see the new Unit. Here she is pictured with former Bristol Mayor George Ferguson, Chairman of Trustees, Drummond Forbes and the dedciated team who treated her.
Whatever you are celebrating, make it extra special by asking friends and family to donate to Above & Beyond instead of buying gifts. Every penny will make a difference to the lives of patients cared for at University Hospitals Bristol. Set up your personal celebration page at Justgiving
