A seasonal cycle ride

A seasonal cycle ride

Just before Christmas, our Managing Director, Kieron Smith, took part in a sponsored bike ride round London in aid of ECHO - the Evelina Children's Heart Organisation. ECHO provides support for children and young people with heart conditions who receive treatment at the Evelina Children's Hospital and outreach clinics at local hospitals attended by Evelina cardiologists.

A friend whom Kieron knows through an Old School BMX bike club has a child who was treated at the Evelina Hospital. This friend regularly organises fundraising bike rides, with £40,000 being raised during 2015 by the Old School BMX community. The Christmas ride raised £12,000 for ECHO, with the 350 participants riding from Waterloo in a ten mile circuit via County Hall, Horseguards Parade, Hyde Park, Leicester Square, Regent Street, along the South Bank and back to Waterloo, all dressed in Santa suits, or other seasonal costumes.
