We create cinemas in hospitals to support patients on the road to recovery


I will be cycling 209 miles to raise money for Medicinema (one of Saturn Visual Solutions' charity partners).

Medicinema creates and runs cinemas in hospitals across the UK, giving patients and their families a brief respite from the clinical environment.

The first of two challenges is ‘The Nello‘ on Sunday 25th June. This race starts in Topsham and will involve cycling all the way to North Devon and back round! This ride is 100 miles long and involves 6000ft of climbing.

The second challenge is ‘The Dartmoor classic.’ This race starts in Newton Abbot and involves cycling around Dartmoor on Sunday 1st July. This is one of the hardest cycle sportive challenges in the UK. To add pressure, I shall be aiming to complete this in ‘gold‘ time. This race is 109 miles and involves 9600ft of climbing.

The combined hill climbs for both one-day challenges will be 15,766 ft, almost the same height of Mont Blanc (15,780 ft), the highest mountain in Western Europe.

Through the latest and best the film industry has to offer, MediCinema utilises the power of cinema to enable patients, many of whom will be experiencing complex and long term hospital stays, to experience some sense of normality and reduce both the isolation and marginalisation they may be feeling.
