13 May 2014 - Pedaling Paramedics

Pedaling ParamedicsPedaling Paramedics from Ambulance Service's around Great Britain, come together to raise money for The Ambulance Services Benevolent Fund (ASBF).

Our very own CEO Bob Williams got involved, put on his cycling gear and joined the journey last Sunday (11 May).

In May 2012 seven staff from the East of England Ambulance Service, North Essex locality, raised funds for the ASBF by cycling from Lands End to John O'Groats.

In May 2013 they embarked on another ride called Tower to Tower (T2T), which saw them cycle 600 miles from Blackpool Tower to the Eiffel Tower, in six days. Once again, funds raised were for the ASBF and this ride enabled them to take their fundraising to over £20,000 thanks to their generous supporters.

It now seems to have become an annual event and this years' ride called GB10, commenced in Sheffield on Friday 9 May, with their final destination being Cambourne in Cambridgeshire, on Saturday 17 May.  During this ride they are hoping to cover 999 miles in 9 days touring around Great Britain and visiting as many regional ambulance services as they can along the way to promote ASBF.

The ASBF help serving and retired NHS ambulance personnel, and their dependents, in times of exceptional hardship, poverty or need. The ASBF provides grants and other support for individuals requiring specialised equipment and home adaptations for medical needs. It also provides aid for those experiencing extreme financial hardship.
If you would like to donate, every penny raised goes to the ASBF, so why not visit their Just Giving page and show your support https://www.justgiving.com/Pedaling-Paramedics
