10th March 2019 – Stoke-on-Trent
We loved partnering with SCIPE at their annual Heart and Soul Uplifting concert. We had amazing performances from the B-Positive Choir, the Emmanu’-el Apostolic Gospel Academy, Donna Marie, Peter Spence and DD King. It was also a great opportunity for our chair of trustees, Kye Gbangbola, to raise awareness and funds for sickle cell and to celebrate our 40th anniversary!
Special thanks to our trustee, Carol Burt, and everyone at SCIPE for organising this fantastic event. Thank you to everyone who came along and who donated.
23rd March 2019 – Woolwich
We had a fantastic time at the Odd Squad Fitness Boot Camp. This fundraising event raised over £600 was all about having fun, getting fit, and celebrating 40 years of the Sickle Cell Society. A huge thank you to everyone who came and to our trustee Sheree, and everyone else who was involved in organising it.
