Honiton golfers raise £4,000 for the ‘helpful’ Devon Freewheelers blood bikes charity

A donation from a trio of Honiton Golf Club captains to the Devon Freewheelers charity will ensure the ‘helpful’ free service continues in the community.

Sarah Loader (current Ladies Captain and representing the outgoing Ladies Captain Vera Richardson), Neil Pulman (outgoing Men’s Captain) and David Scott (outgoing Senior’s Captain) presented a cheque for £4,283 to the Devon Freewheelers blood bikes charity, inviting CEO Russell Roe and volunteer Dave Cook to receive the donation.

Russell Roe, Devon Freewheelers CEO, said: “We are so grateful to the Honiton Golf Club captains for their kind-hearted donation.

“The funds will be used to maintain the blood bikes and ensure the free transport and courier service can continue helping out in the community, supporting the NHS, at no cost.”

He added: “It’s thanks to the generosity of clubs, organisations, businesses and individuals raising funds for the charity that we are able to pass that support on to the NHS and the community, providing our free service wherever it is needed across the county.”

Golfer Neil Pulman said the Devon Freewheelers had been the captains’ charity of the year.

He said: “The charity helps the community. One day one of us might need its help, and people at the club might need its help.”

The donation was made possible thanks to a host of fundraising activities and events held at the golf club.
