A cycling team from Basildon Hospital will be powering across London and Surrey to raise money to improve facilities for young patients.
Physiotherapist Bianca Broadbent, consultant anaesthetist James Carrannante and estates manager Simon Myles will cycle 100 miles in the Ride London event on August 4.
The challenge begins at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, in Stratford, and will pass iconic London landmarks before going to the Surrey hills.
The hospital’s Polly Parrot appeal aims to raise money to help redesign and decorate the paediatric facilities and to buy specialist equipment.
James Carrannante said: “We have seen from the success of the children’s emergency
department appeal how improving the hospital environment has an immense positive
impact on our patients and visitors.
“We want to reproduce these improvements in all our children’s facilities; the
beneficiaries of our appeal will be the children and their parents who use our services.”
