Local team raises £10,000 for George Eliot Coronary Care Unit

Basics charity night Jan 2015 - web

Bermuda and Stockingford Intensive Care Support Team (BASICS) presented another huge cheque worth £10,000 to the Coronary Care Unit at the George Eliot at a music and comedy charity event night recently.

The packed fundraising night featured the enjoyable group Last Stand and jokes from comedian Ian Probert.

BASICS is the lasting legacy for Kath Turner who started to raise funds after suffering a heart attack in 1987. Over the years the charity has raised over £350,000 and donated it all to the George Eliot.

The group have organised football tournaments, cabaret concerts and other events over the years to help raise money to buy invaluable equipment for the George Eliot Hospital.

Coronary Care Consultant, Abdul Maher said: "This donation will be used for future new equipment within our Coronary Care Unit. We have the best Coronary Care Unit in the region thanks to BASICS charity work.

"This donation means so much to the Coronary Care Unit and I am humbled by another donation to coronary care in the area.

"Words cannot express our gratitude to all who support BASICS and the hard work of the committee fundraising on our behalf."
