Touching Lives - March 2009
Partners in Action
Following their support of our highly successful Scottish Ladies’ Lunches, BMI Healthcare have repeated this winning formula in the south of England, sponsoring the hugely popular Dine with Davina at Southampton’s De Vere Grand Harbour Hotel last October. This fantastic event was hosted by Big Brother presenter Davina McCall (pictured above), with 380 ladies enjoying a fine meal and entertainment provided by singer Tony Hadley.
We are delighted to welcome a new Action Partner, the Eastgate Shopping Centre in Basildon, which entered a team of five riders into our London to Paris ride last year, raising over £6,500. This year the aim is to bring a larger team of up to 25, as well as taking part in the Suffolk Sunrise bike ride in May. At the shopping centre itself, they are promoting printer and mobile phone recycling on behalf of Action Medical Research, selling Paddington pin badges and have even charged customers to use their toilets, which were recently voted the best in Britain!
