Lands End to John O’Groats for Local Life Saving Charity
Two audacious occupational therapists from Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Aimee Fryer and Kathryn Girling, are set to cycle from John O’Groats to Lands End. All the money they raise will go to the East Anglian Air Ambulance. Aimee explained: “We are absolutely delighted to be tackling this ‘Ride across Britain’ in aid of the EAAA. So many of our patients receive critical care medical treatment from the highly-trained doctors and paramedics who work for the East Anglian Air Ambulance. We wanted to support the fantastic work of the charity by raising as much money as possible for them. We have funded all the costs of the ride ourselves and so every single penny we raise will go straight to the EAAA.”
