Three of our surgeons have now raised over £2,100 for our hospital charity after completing their London to Brighton cycle ride.
On Sunday 19 September Consultant Surgeons Christopher Liao and Mr Vamsi Velchuru and Urologist Mr Lokesh Suraparaju completed the 55-mile ride event, which allows cyclists to complete the route in their own time, and to raise money for a charity of their choice.
All three of our surgeons decided to raise funds for the James Paget Hospital Charity.
Christopher Liao said; “The ride was amazing, although I had a puncture just two miles short of the finish line! Fortunately, we were in Brighton, so we managed to get the puncture fixed – crossing the line in 4 hours 29 minutes cycling time.”
Vamsi Velchuru said; “Incredibly I managed to complete the ride, thanks to the team. Personally this has been a difficult year and having had long Covid myself, the ride was a test for both my emotional and physical strength. If I can do it, anyone of you can do it – start exercising! I’m very grateful for the generous donations and please support the James Paget charity to cross the £2500 finish line.”
