Stoke Mandeville

Secretary: Mike Pitcher - next meeting: 14th January 2020, 6.30 at the Charter, Aylesbury

Stoke Mandeville branch was founded in 2016 after the Chairman of the SCKPA had lobbied the NHS over ill-conceived plans to increase car parking charges for dialysis patients at High Wycombe and Stoke Mandeville.

We hold a monthly supper meeting at The Charter, 2 Rimmington Way, Aylesbury HP19 8AW. Click The Charter to visit their website. They have been very good friends to us and make us very welcome each month.

We meet on the second Tuesday of the month at 6pm for 6:30pm. (We chose the second Tuesday because Stoke Mandeville Renal Unit takes bloods on the first Wednesday - work it out!). Please ring (01296 421448) or email Jose in advance if you would like to attend.

Stoke Mandeville branch decided that they wanted to get directly involved in raising funds for use at the Stoke Mandeville Renal Unit and for the SCKPA as a whole. More details can be found on the Fundraising pages of this website, but in summary we have;

  • Held a Car Boot Sale, courtesy of Princes Risborough Scouts and Guides Associations

  • Created and manage Sidney da Kidney who raises money by accompanying you on holiday

  • Set up and manage the range of SCKPA items available, e.g. NKS keys which open disabled toilets in public spaces such as pubs, shopping centres, motorway service stations, bus and train stations and many more

  • Installed individual television sets in the Stoke Mandeville dialysis ward for patients to watch the programmes of their own choice.
    We acknowledge the great support given to this project by Aylesbury Freemasons and Haddenham (and other) Rotarians

  • Hosted a barbeque and authentic paella lunch for patients and guests
