Midsomer Norton RUH Fundraising Group Cycle for Cancer Care

The Midsomer Norton RUH Fundraising Group had a fantastic time cycling for The Forever Friends Appeal, the primary fundraising charity for the Royal United Hospital (RUH), Bath. On the 11th February, the group completed another Charity Spinathon Challenge at Tesco in Keynsham. Proceeds from these fundraising events will be donated to the RUH Cancer Care Campaign – helping to build a pioneering new Cancer Centre at the RUH.

The group put on their trainers for a Charity Spinathon and cycled from 9am to 4pm, with a handful of volunteers taking turns on the bike. As generous shoppers watched and donated, the team sweated their way to making an amazing £657.72!

This is a local group of volunteers who have come together to do something really special to help those affected by cancer. They meet once a month at Welton Rovers Football Club in Midsomer Norton to organize fundraising activities around the local area. This lovely group is looking for more members to help them raise even more funds towards this worthwhile cause. If you would like to find out more about the group, and how you can get involved, contact Claudia Hickin, Community Fundraiser at The Forever Friends Appeal, on 01225 825825 or claudia.hickin@nhs.net.

Claudia comments, ‘The Midsomer Norton RUH Fundraising Group are absolutely fantastic, and we are so grateful for their dedicated support to the Cancer Care Campaign. Despite being a small group, they are hardworking and committed and achieve amazing things. It’s exciting to see what else they will achieve in 2017!’
