Thames Festival a success for BDMLR

On Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th September over a dozen medics from the South-East of England and Home Counties came together to help raise funds for BDMLR at The Mayor’s Thames Festival. This year the festival coincided with the closing weekend of the Paralympic Games, celebrating the end of an incredible summer for London and bringing hundreds of thousands of people to the banks of the Thames.

The festival takes place every year to celebrate London and the River Thames, it is a free event and open to everyone. The weekend was a great success and we raised colse to £600 in donations and merchandise sales for BDMLR.  A big thank you to everyone who helped make the weekend a success - we will definitely be back next year!

Next year’s Thames Festival takes place on the 14th & 15th September.
