Prolift Access managing director Andy Pearson swapped powered access for pedal power at the weekend to raise money for a hospital and community care charity.
Andy organised Carl’s Charity Ride in support of two close friends who have undergone treatment for cancer, and was joined on the 90-mile cycle by his wife Ali and 13 other friends.
The group rode from Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton, Somerset, to the Great Western Hospital in Swindon – the hospitals where their two friends have been treated.
The cycle ride, which gained generous sponsorship from Niftylift and Prolift Access, took around six hours on Saturday.
Andy’s JustGiving page has also raised more than £1,500 for the Brighter Futures charity, which supports Great Western Hospital and community healthcare services across Wiltshire. Anyone wishing to donate can still do so by visiting www.justgiving.com/andy-pearson3.
