Danish Rally 27 July – 3 August 2019

We now have details of the Danish Bürstner Owners’ Club 10th Anniversary Rally being held at Middelfart from 27 July to 3 August 2019. They have invited our club and also the Swedish, Norwegian and Dutch Bürstner clubs.

The good news is that they will welcome all of our members including associates and that there is no limit on numbers. As this is not one of our official rallies can I ask you to book directly via the link in the attached file below but can you also please let Sue Hackett (webmaster@burstnerclub.co.uk) know when you’ve booked please.

Burstner UK Owners’ Club Rallies for 2019 and Warners Shows for 2019 are now available to view and book from the website under Rallies/Events 2019. When booking for the Warners Shows please book direct with them but request to be sited with the Burstner UK Owners’ Club, we are normally pitched very close to the exhibition area.  We still need volunteers to marshal the Warners Shows, if you are able to help with this please contact Ray Doust (raydoust@btinternet.com).

This Year’s Charity – Hope For Tomorrow

At the AGM it was decided that the following Charity would be our Club nominated Charity for this year.

Hope for Tomorrow is a dedicated charity, bringing cancer care closer to patients’ homes via our Mobile Cancer Care Units (MCCUs).
As a cancer charity, we understand that time is a crucial factor for patients, and in 2007 we launched the world’s first ever Mobile Cancer Care Unit (previously Mobile Chemotherapy Unit) to bring vital cancer care closer to patients, enabling them to spend more time with family, friends and loved ones.
We develop, build, provide and maintain MCCUs to support patients who are going through Chemotherapy by alleviating the stresses and strains of travelling for appointments, along with reducing hospital waiting times.
We work in a unique partnership with the NHS helping to ease capacity challenges at hospital trusts. We now have 10 MCCUs operational in Gloucestershire, Somerset, South Wiltshire, Hampshire, East Kent, Lincolnshire, Cornwall, West Suffolk, East Essex and London/ Surrey, with two reserve MCCUs in place to ensure continuity of service during the maintenance schedule. We also provide a Nurses Support Vehicle with each MCCU, which allows the nursing team to travel to and from the daily treatment locations.
Since the launch of the first Mobile Cancer Care Unit (previously Mobile Chemotherapy Unit) in 2007, the charity has saved patients a total of over 2,000,000 miles and over 170,000 hours of travel and waiting time.
The charity won a Queen’s Award for Enterprise – Innovation, in 2016. The Award is the UK’s highest accolade for business success, and was made in recognition of our achievements since the Founder, Christine Mills MBE, set up Hope for Tomorrow in 2003.
