Residents who live in a Downham sheltered housing scheme are gearing up to support the area’s blood bikers at one of their forthcoming coffee mornings.
People living in the town’s Prince Henry Place, which is managed by Freebridge Community Housing, enjoy regular events, including coffee mornings and afternoon teas, in the complex’s social club.
The latest such event was held on Saturday morning in aid of the club itself.
However, officials say their event on Saturday, October 3, between 10am and noon, will be raising funds for the SERV blood bikes charity, which delivers vital medical supplies to the county’s hospitals.
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the building of Prince Henry Place, which was renovated in 2008.
The complex has 27 bungalows for people who are aged 55 and over and have medical needs.
