Gym members who rode from Hucknall to Skegness raise more than £3,000 for City Hospital
A team of cyclists from a Hucknall gym has raised £3,674 for the haematology ward at Nottingham’s City Hospital after riding from the town to Skegness last month.
And although one of their party suffered a broken arm after falling off in a crash, everyone else came through unscathed and exhilarated by the experience.
Jenny Walter, gym manager, said: “Once the final total was in, we handed the cheque over to the Nottingham University Hospitals charity on September 11.
“The lady rider who broke her elbow is now recovering after having an operation, which included plates and pins.
Jenny says they are now looking at making the ride a regular event so they can raise money for different charities each year.
She added: "We’re thinking of making it an annual thing now and members of the gym can put forward charities they want us to raise money for each year.”
