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.”
The ride will take Aimee and Kathryn through some of the most beautiful parts of Britain — from moorlands and highlands to valleys and coastal roads — but it will also test their fitness to the limit. Beginning on 8th June, the ‘Ride across Britain’ will cover 3 countries and 23 counties, and will finish on 16th June. That’s 960 miles in just 9 days, an average of
106 miles a day! Aimee and Kathryn have been training for their heroic trip for over 9 months, through one of the wettest and coldest winters on record. After much blood, sweat and tears (not to mention endless punctures), the pair are now as ready as they can be…
