Cyclists ride Way of the Roses for hospital funds

A 170-mile bicycle ride by four work colleagues from our parent company, Galliford Try, raised more than £2,000 for charitable funds at Gateshead’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Stevie Forster, Simon Maddison, Simon Grylls and Ashley Foster – who work for Galliford Try Partnerships North – tackled the Way of the Roses route connecting the Lancashire coast at Morecambe to the Yorkshire coast at Bridlington.

The ride was inspired by the care that Stevie’s auntie and uncle received after both being diagnosed with cancer two years ago. They are now in remission and Stevie wanted to find a way to thank the hospital for the great support they received.

He said: “When I told everyone at work what I wanted to do there were instant promises of donations and Ashley and the two Simons all said they’d like to ride with me and help with the fundraising.

“It was a tough ride, but we had a fantastic time over the two days and most importantly, raised awareness and money for an excellent cause.”

Mr D. A. Browell, FRCS Consultant Surgeon/Divisional Director for Surgical Services at the QE Hospital and one of the founders of the Mr Browell’s Cancer Research Fund, said:  “We are incredibly grateful to the riders from Galliford Try for all their fundraising efforts.”
