Events organised by a Whitehaven woman have raised £650 for Blood Bikes Cumbria.

Jane Broadbent collected the money following raffles and tombolas held at Cleator Moor Civic Hall.

She presented the money to Graeme McDonald and Ann Marie Moffatt of Blood Bikes West Cumbria.

Jane, of Rutland Avenue, said: “Thank you to everyone who supported me, esp-ecially Joyce Kane, and Louise Ridley of Distington Surgery.’’

She will be travelling to a Buckingham Palace garden party next month after being nominated following her charity fundraising.

“I am really looking forward to it,’’ she said. “I will be going with my friend, Kay Smith, and we will also be enjoying some sightseeing.’’

Blood Bikes Cumbria provides a free urgent/emergency transport service across Cumbria for NHS hospitals and the Great North Air Ambulance.

It provides out-of-hours transport 365 days of the year to transport urgently needed blood, samples, human tissue and other medical requirements.

It uses motorcycles and cars, is dependent on charitable donations and is run entirely by volunteers.
