SoulPad charity auction raises over £440 for the Rudham Ward

SoulPad very kindly offered to auction one of their very own design, top selling bell tents for charity on Ebay auctions

The SouPad 5000-tribe 

Cotton canvas fly with sewn-in groundsheet (SIG), 5m diameter, 1.85m entrance, 3.5m at centre, weight 31.2kg. This SoulPad® really stands out from the crowd. You will never lose your tent amongst the endless domes again!

The luxurious, extra thick (540g/m2), waterproof groundsheet is sewn-in to the canvas material of the tent.

This groundsheet is ‘bath tub’ style, so if you find yourself at a festival camping in a field-turned-lake, you know it’s not going to let the water in.

There is a large vent at the top of the bell. This can be used to exit the SoulPad Blaze-tribeflue, or simply to vent the tent.

Taking its roots from both the northern Scandinavian Lavvu (for structural design) and the Native American tipi (for aesthetics), the 5000-tribe™ is conical in shape and has a large footprint. A significant area is in contact and anchored to the ground by three series’ of ground pegs, making it a real ground hugger.

Archie continues to spend much of his time in hospital, with increasing complications affecting his internal organs. The Rudham Ward plays an instrumental role to ensure Archie’s medical needs are managed as much as possible. We greatly appreciate the kind generosity from our local community.

All money raise was donated directly to the Rudham Ward at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital King’s Lynn Charitable Fund

Many Thanks to Mark & Zoe Vanderstay

Huge thanks to donors at Norwich City Football Club…

Archie joined 124 blood donors from across Norfolk, Suffolk and Lincolnshire to say a huge thank you for their commitment after donating over 9800 units of blood to save the lives of so many.

Huge thanks to donors at Norwich City Football Club…

The Award Ceremony was held at Norwich City Football Club on the 7th November.  Blood donor sessions have been held at Carrow Road since September 2010, collecting over 6700 units of blood. The day started with a personal guided tour of the football ground, soaking up the history of the club which formed in 1902.  Shortly after the tour Archie had the opportunity to meet up with all of the donors receiving awards during the reception.  After lunch, Archie presented each of the donors with a crystal award for their long standing commitment to donating whole blood. Each of the donors received an award for 75 (Emerald) blood donations or 100 (Diamond) blood donations. Overall the day was a great success and emotional to see so many hero’s in one room.

Archie presented a Cheque for £6500 to Rudham ward manager, Sister Debbie Shales. The money will go towards improving facilities upon the Rudham Ward.

With the help of so many sponsors we’ve managed to raise over £6500 which is absolutely fantastic and has far exceeded our expectations. We are all very grateful for your kind donation. Archie Ramshaw  is pictured above presenting a cheque to Rudham Wards  Sister Debbie Shales whilst he was admitted to the ward having a routine  Blood Transfusion in October.

Rudham ward including the Doctors, Nurses and Play Specialists have been Archie’s lifeline for the last few years and will continue to be so for Archie and many other children in the future. This will go a long way to improve the children’s experience whilst they are visiting Rudham Ward.
