The Nursing Times team is taking to the streets to raise money for two major health charities.
Nursing Times editor Alastair McLellan will be taking part in the annual London to Brighton bike ride for the British Heart Foundation. The route from the capital to the coast culminates in a gruelling, mile-long climb up the famously steep Ditchling Beacon.
Alastair, who described the challenge as “at least twice as much exercise as I’ve ever attempted in one day”, is aiming to raise £1,500 for the BHF, a global leader in heart disease research and prevention.
Online editor Gabriel Fleming will be attempting a similar feat in the Nightrider Challenge - a through-the-night bike ride taking in London’s most famous landmarks over 62 miles.
Gabriel is fundraising for Doctors of the World, a charity that helps provide medical care to people effected by natural disasters, conflict and extreme poverty, as well as running UK projects to help marginalised groups access health care.
