100th Shipment at Physionet
Updated: Nov 1, 2020
York Rotarians have for many been supporting the work of Physionet , a local charity who collect surplus NHS equipment - mostly mobility aids - then sort, clean and store these until regular shipments are made to third-world countries who are desperate for such equipment.
Our members' support has been in the form of helping with truck loading, as well as volunteering as drivers to collect equipment from hospitals all over the UK.
Recently 5 members helped with the latest truck loading - at the Gelsthorpe Farm storage location off the A59 - as these pictures show.
This was a special shipment, as it was the 100th in Physionet's history, and was to Fiji. By coincidence, the very first shipment was also sent to Fiji, in 2005.
