For the 6th year running, I was pleased to be invited back to join the Tour de Frimley team as medical support. Here they are at the finish line after 500 grueling miles at the foot of the Pyrenees in Spain. This year’s challenge fundraised for the Frimley Health Charity Stroke Appeal to help support patients on their long road to recovery through a new build, investment in new technologies and equipment.
I am pleased to announce that I will once again be joining the Tour de Frimley team in 2019 as a member of their support team (medical and logistics). For a change of scenery the team will be cycling to Spain and part of the Pyrenees mountain range all in aid of the Frimley Health Charity Stroke Appeal. The challenge is sponsored by the Parkside Suite, Frimley for whom I am Clinical Lead and supported by 4th Batallion Princess of Wales Royal regiment (4PWRR). The challenge will occur in the Summer of 2019 with more details to follow. To sponsor the team, please visit their Just Giving page.
For the third year running I was lucky enough to be part of the Tour de Frimley support crew, looking after 16 brave cyclists who covered nearly 700 miles in Northern France for the Frimley Park Hospital Breast Care Appeal. We left Frimley on 27th August 2016 and returned on 4th September. To date the team have raised about £30,000 which is their most successful year to date. You can follow their full journey on their Facebook page. With Tour de Frimley and Ride 4 Frimley, cycling has achieved a staggering £100,000 in fundraising over the three years of the appeal. Thank you all very much for your efforts and commitment. Thank you also to the teams sponsors 3PWRR (The Tigers), Brooks and Partners, Brandtastic and GearedUp Cycles.
