This year’s Ball was a great success!
Saturday February 15th 2020
Pure Queen were amazing and everyone had a fabulous time.
Little did we know then that we were about to face the biggest crisis in living memory!
Our constitution describes the ways in which we can work to help our NHS by fund raising through events like the Ball and
The Big Hearted Bike Day
Dr Chris Monk, one of our Trustees has explained that the
Fibre Optic Intubating Laryngoscope that we bought and donated to the Bristol Heart Institute will save many more lives as it is used extensively in the treatment of patients with Coronavirus.
We are all cheering our wonderful NHS staff
as they work around the clock to save lives
This poem puts our thoughts into words
I’ll tell you a tale, that’s been recently written.
Of a powerful army, so Great it saved Britain.
They didn’t have bombs and they didn’t have planes.
They fought with their hearts and they fought with their brains.
They didn’t have bullets, armed just with a mask.
We sent them to war, with one simple task.
To show us the way, to lead and inspire us.
To protect us from harm and fight off the virus.
It couldn’t be stopped by our bullet proof vests.
An invisible enemy, invaded our chests.
So we called on our weapon, our soldiers in Blue.
“All Doctors, All Nurses, Your Country needs you”.
We clapped on our streets, hearts bursting with pride.
As they went off to war, while we stayed inside.
They struggled at first, as they searched for supplies.
But they stared down the virus, in the whites of its eyes.
They leaped from the trenches and didn’t think twice.
Some never came back, the ultimate price.
So tired, so weary, yet still they fought on.
As the virus was beaten and the battle was won.
The many of us, owe so much, to so few.
The brave and the bold, our heroes in Blue.
So let’s line the streets and remember our debt.
We love you, our heroes, Lest we forget.
We send our thanks to every one of you
