A Big Thank you to Pete and Carl of CF 500

26th November 2019

Pete and Carl have raised £6850 for our Cystic Fibrosis Centre with a Classic Car drive to and around the North Coast of Scotland as well as arranging numerous other fundraising events with their classic Morris Minor cars. Pete and Carl presented their cheque to Dr Whitehouse and staff during a visit to see the newly refurbished rooms on ward 26.

Pete, Carl and friends drove their classic cars around the north coast of the UK starting at Pateley Bridge on Sunday 2nd August 2019 going clockwise around the North coast of Scotland and finishing at Ilkeston on the Sunday 11th August.A total of approximately 1500 miles.

The West Midlands Adult Cystic Fibrosis Centre for has a personal connection for them. Peter's step daughter Nikita passed away last year at the age of 26 from Cystic Fibrosis. Nikita always spoke highly of the care and support that she and others with Cystic Fibrosis received when at Heartlands Hospital. This is the inspiration in her memory to fundraise for this great cause.

Our fundraising continues, as we still have 9 rooms left to refurbish. You can make a donation via our Just Giving page.
