Meet the people who are raising money for Woundcare4Heroes


Gareth Kempson (left) and Kris Flinn (right) will be riding from the Army & Navy Club in London to the Welsh Wound Innovation Centre in Llantrisant in just one day, which is over 160 miles!

They are great believers in the work that Woundcare4Heroes are doing and as employees of BioMonde (manufactures of Larval Debridement Therapy products) they understand the impact what chronic wounds can have on patient quality of life. 

They are already well underway in their training and both are putting good shifts in at various places around the World based on where they are with work commitments at the time.

Any contributions will be greatly appreciated. You can donate by going to: www.justgiving.com/BioMondeCycle/

 

Urgo Medical - raising money at Wound UK Harrogate

Urgo at Harrogate
At the recent Wounds UK Harrogate conference, Urgo Medical encouraged delegates to choose a charity after they played a 'hole of golf' on our stand upstairs. It is great news that Wound Care for Heroes was the favourite charity and secured the most golf balls, leading to a donation from Urgo of £725. 

We are incredibly grateful for this generous donation and would also like to thank the delegates at the conference for choosing Woundcare4Heroes!
