A challenging 100 mile cycle ride awaits our Inpatient Unit Matron, Liz Kennedy.

Liz, and her pedal powered  family will be cycling from London to the Surrey hills and back again on Sunday August 2nd in memory of a dear family friend Iain Churchill who died in our Inpatient Unit in January.

Swapping her Peace Hospice Care uniform for slick lycra cycle-wear,  Liz, husband Richard, and sons Will and Dom will be taking part in the Prudential London Bike Ride an aiming to raise £2,000 to support the services of Peace Hospice Care.

'I am taking up this huge challenge as a team effort with my family,' said Liz . ' We want to support Peace Hospice Care in memory of Iain Churchill. As a family we want to remember him. It was my son Will's idea to complete the ride.

Liz and family, who started cycling last year in the UK and French Pyrenees are also staging two fundraising 'Bike-athon' days on July 4 and 5th at Burston Garden Centre in St Albans in which they will be offering the public the opportunity to 'have a go' and help us. Static training bikes will be available and  public will be able to find out more about  Peace Hospice Care Services at  a promotional stand.

 Please pledge your support for Liz, or get down to the Mall and join the welcoming party.
