Ten-hour charity spinathon goes beyond £10,000 target

Fundraisers on static bikes cycled their way beyond the £10,000 target in aid of the RUH Forever Friends Appeal and the British Heart Foundation.

The event was organised by Rob Walsh, whose brother sadly died of a heart attack and spin teacher Tash Hillier, who lost her father to the same condition.

More than £10,000 was raised which will go towards the Bath hospital’s cardiology ward.

Bath MP Ben Howlett, vice president of the appeal, said: “I give my heartiest congratulations to everyone involved in this innovative fund raiser last weekend. It is a great achievement to have raised so much money for the Forever Friends Appeal and British Heart Foundation. It is always inspiring to see how personal tragedy can bring about so much good for the wider community.

“This is an issue very close to me and my family following my father’s recent heart valve operation.

“I am delighted to be able to regularly support the Forever Friends Appeal and British Heart Foundation and would particularly like to thank Rob and Tash for organising this excellent fund raising event.”
