Spire Gatwick Park Hospital is proud to be taking part in a company-wide fundraising challenge from Sunday 23 - Sunday 30 June 2019 to raise money for THET and the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity for their support of the George and the Giant Pledge campaign and the Harry's Giant Pledge campaign (both local children). You can read more about the excellent work they both do below.

Across our 39 hospitals and each of our support sites, we will be raising money for THET who is an international charity that helps provide healthcare access and workers in developing countries, as well as local causes in each of our communities.

Throughout the week our colleagues will be taking part in our charity challenge as we aim to cover 40,000km between us. As part of this, a team of colleagues including our CEO Justin Ash and CFO Jitesh Sodha will be riding a gruelling 333km from our office in central London to our hospital in Bristol all in one day. On their way they will stop at our St Anthony's, Gatwick Park, Portsmouth and Southampton hospitals.

Kirsten King, from our Pathology Department is also part of the team. Kirsten has always been a very keen cyclist since a very young age cycling to school and to see friends, giving her independence long before she passed her driving test. Kirsten has completed the Prudential Ride London 100 mile event twice; raced at Half Ironman distance abroad and at home; taken part in an on & off-road cycling, trail-running and kayaking challenge across Scotland; and more recently taken up adventure racing, typically 6-hour events including navigation around a course without sat-nav.

They will be joined by Mark Beaumont, the world-renowned athlete, broadcaster and ambassador. We’re hoping that Mark Beaumont’s grit and experience, having tackled multiple worldwide cycle challenges, will rub off on the team and help push them on at their toughest points. Two years ago, Mark smashed the world record for cycling the 18,000-mile route around the world in 79 days, knocking 44 days off the existing record. To say the team is excited about riding with Mark would be an understatement – it’s an absolute privilege.

As well as cycling, some of our colleagues will be walking and running to clock up those all-important kms as we challenge each site to cover 1,000km! If each of our hospitals and support sites manages this, it means we will have covered the equivalent of one lap around the world between us!

At Spire Gatwick Park Hospital, we will be organising a bake sale, a quiz night, a barbecue, and plenty of other fun activities. We will also be holding a car wash, a book sale and most importantly we will be cycling, running, and walking to try and raise as much money as possible.

Thank you for taking the time to read our page. We are extremely grateful for all donations which will help to make a positive difference both locally and internationally.
