Bluebell Cancer Patient Care
Who we are
By walking 7,000 miles around the Great Britain and Ireland, Bluebell Cancer Patient Care aims to highlight the difficulties of Cancer Patient Transport and raise £1m by public and commercial donations, sponsorship and goodwill, to offer this transport service nationwide. We propose to create a network of ‘hubs’ in strategic locations to provide free cancer patient journeys.
The Coastal Footpath Walk began 5th March 2018, Baltic Quay (Millennium Bridge) walking to Tyneside Priory and then anti-clockwise around Great Britain and Ireland, then back to Newcastle in circa two years! When we get to North Wales, we shall cross the Irish Sea by ferry at Holyhead for Dublin and again travel anti-clockwise around the island of Ireland and back again to Dublin, then the ferry back to Holyhead.
A HUGE thank you from Bluebell and her team to everyone who can help us create 1,000,000 cancer patient journeys.
The cost of the day to day running of Bluebell and the journey will be paid for privately by Brian Burnie, the founder and Chairman of the Trustees of the Charity.
Bluebell is aiming to raise £1,000,000 (£1m) to bring free cancer patient transport NATIONWIDE with the creation of a network of hubs and the provision of support, financial and administrative, to those persons who wish to set up and operate the service in new areas.
