Looking for a good cause?

At Pentagull we talked about making some kind of contribution to the effort, we just needed to decide what we wanted to contribute and who too.

 

Our decision was helped along when during lockdown we welcomed a new member to the Pentagull family in the form of baby Eve, who was born in the peak infection week for the virus here in the UK. But you wouldn’t have known that because the hospital staff were just perfect!

 

This helped focus or mind on who we wanted to make a contribution to, Blackpool Victoria Hospital. We now just needed to work out how to do that.

 

After a little bit (a lot) of digging we found that they had a charity called blue skies and that you can donate to them directly using their Just Giving page.

So, if you are looking for a good cause in the North West of England in particular then why not consider donating to the blue skies charity! I'm sure hospitals all over will have similar sites though if you are not local to the good old Vic!
