Pedal power at the double
LAURA Green, a nurse at the Bristol Children’s Hospital, cycled 430km over four days from Bristol to Paris in June as part of a big team from the Above & Beyond charity.
She personally raised £4058.31 towards a new scanner for the Fetal Medicine dept at St Michael’s Hospital. The entire team raised over £151,000, which exceeded their target for the scanner.
In June, Jon Tooby undertook a personal challenge by completing the one-day, 190 mile (305km) Dragon Ride, which includes nearly 4000 metres of climbing in the Brecon Beacons. This ride is Wales’s stage for the Tour de France. Jon spent 10 hours 30 minutes in the saddle, burned 7500 calories and raised £1175 for Macmillan.
Both Jon and his family and Laura and her family are members of Christ Church Downend.
