Blood Pressure Awareness Day 2018
A bumper turnout in the sunshine!
The annual Blood Pressure Awarewnes Day took place in Clitheroe May 26th.
Alan Yearing, event organiser, was delighted with the public response, around 125 people had their blood pressure reading taken, with a record 19 being referred to their Doctor. In past years referrals have been in single figures.
The book sale also did record business, selling books at 50p each, around £150 was raised through the efforts of June and Jeff Riding and Sue Yearing, who spent the whole day at the event supported by other Rotarians.
Alan would like to thank the URC for donating their premises, all the Medical Professionals who volunteered their time to take the readings during the day and to the army of Rotarians and partners who made the event a big community success.
