The Mendips Lakes and Lumps Ride Official Charity Partner
The Mendips Lakes and Lumps Ride is taking place on Sunday 11th June 2023 and we're proud to partner with Bristol & Weston Hospitals Charity, the NHS charity for TEN hospitals including Bristol Children's Hospital, Bristol Heart Institute, and Weston General Hospital.
Your NHS Charity
We all know how incredibly lucky we are to have the NHS in the UK. But the NHS can’t cover everything, which is where Bristol & Weston Hospitals Charity (BWHC) comes in. Along with around 250 other NHS charities around the country, BWHC bridges the gap, providing responses to the challenges facing our hospitals. This helps our hospitals in Bristol and Weston achieve far more than if they relied on NHS funds alone.
And that's why we're calling on our participants to use their place in the Ride to raise money for BWHC - the entry fee effectively covers the cost of putting the event on, so it's the money you raise that will make a big difference.
BWHC's funding doesn’t pay for the standard elements of NHS care like doctor’s salaries, basic hospital beds or essential scanners. But together with University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust (UHBW), BWHC pushes the limits of what’s possible. They go above and beyond to transform the experiences patients have in our hospitals, wherever the need is greatest. And they are committed to helping our hospitals go that extra mile for you and everyone who means the world to you.
So BWHC would love you to do something great for your hospitals by using your Mendips Lakes and Lumps Ride to raise money for Bristol & Weston Hospitals Charity. The money you raise will make a big difference and help BWHC to bring more moments of joy, comfort and hope to those who need it most.
