Charity | Charity News Events – Success – The Charity Bike Ride 2017
Final Fundraising Total £41,145.74
The 2017 Leicester HPB Unit’s charity bike ride for Pancreatic Liver cancer research has been successfully completed.
The team of cyclists consisting of surgeons, research doctors, scientists, specialist nurses, matrons, anesthetists, patients, ward and theatre staff, senior hospital managers, general practitioners, practice nurses, relatives, family, friends, and colleagues from the pharmaceutical industry.
The numbers of cyclists taking part in this challenge have increased year on year. The cycling event over the years has helped to raise over a £125,000 which has been invested directly into the units pancreatic and liver cancer research which supports research that benefits patients locally in Leicestershire and all over the UK as well. The Leicester HPB unit needed to find ways of raising money themselves to ensure that their vital research work can continue hence the annual charity bike ride. To enter the event each cyclist needed to raise £250 of sponsorship, many of their family, friends, and colleagues, have very generously donated to enable them to achieve their target, so thank you to you all.
We would also like to thank all the local companies in the area for their support, whether in the form of raffle prizes, or sustenance for the cyclists during the day, without your generosity they could not have done it.
