Story

Thanks for visiting our fundraising page.
To raise money for the Broomfield’s ICU appeal, 4 amateur cyclists from the ICU and operating theatres will set out from the Hospital on the 2nd of July and ride to John O’Groats …. then turn round and ride back, 150 miles a day for ten days,
You’ll be able to follow our progress on our web site broomfieldicu.co.uk, as each rider will be keeping a diary on his blog page , all the ups and downs along with the odd photo.
4,400 miles ridden, 9 tyres, 14 Punctures, 400 Energy Gels and 31 counties later, we arrived back at Broomfield Hospital at 18.20 on the 12th of July.
A tremendous reception party of family and friends where waiting for us, armed with champagne, beer, and a BBQ, as we crossed the line after the last leg from Lincoln.
A big Thank you! to everyone who supported and helped organise the party, The Crouch Vale brewery for the beer and everyone else who turned up … which I think was everyone who supported and helped organise the party.
Its not too late to donate money to our appeal, the “Just giving” site will run on up till September and Jon is still taking donations at Chelmer Cycles.
If you have already made a donation then thank you very much, we will be putting the final amount raised on the site later when it is known.
Last and certainly not least to the long-suffering families of the riders THANK YOU  for your patience and letting us go on this mentalists dream.

Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It’s also the most efficient way to sponsor us: Mid Essex Hospitals NHS Trust Charitable Fund gets your money faster and, if you’re a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation.

So please sponsor us!
