Hospital cyclists raise almost £2,000 in charity bike ride

Outgoing Chair Dean Fathers was pleased to accept a cheque for an impressive £1,978, raised by our team of hospital staff who cycled the entire 103.7 miles between all our hospital sites recently.

All the money will go to our charitable funds which goes towards direct patient care.

Marie Beck, matron for cancer services said: “We thought it would be a super idea to complete a cycle ride with our ULHT colleagues to unite us as Trust employees, seek sponsorship and donate the money raised to our very own charity, for areas that didn’t have very many charitable fund donations.

“We named the venture Hospital 2 Hospital 4 ULH and completed the ride in seven hours.

“We would like to thank Iain and Steve at OSB Events who donated goodie bags for all of the riders, Tesco who donated snacks, Morrisons for their donations of bottles of water and Damian at iPRINT Textile who created our bespoke finishers’ t shirts.

“It was a superb day and the weather was perfect and we would also like to thank staff members Sam Daniels and Sam McCarthy-Phull who supported us so well at all the stops and to our non-executive director Sarah Dunnett who started the event off at Grantham hospital at 8am.
