Engineering staff from Southeastern’s Slade Green train depot have so far raised over £4,000 after a 70 mile bike ride.
The team rode from Slade Green to Ramsgate, via Gillingham, on 27 June 2014. The object is to raise money for Demelza House children’s hospice and Supporting Sarah.
Says Gavin Fuller, technical services manager for Southeastern and one of the cyclists, ‘We’ve been delighted by the level of support that we’ve received so far.
‘Demelza is a fantastic charity to fundraise for and we’re pleased to also be able to pull together for a colleague who needs our help. We hope to raise a substantial amount for both causes.’
Supporting Sarah, a fund to pay medical bills, set up a trust fund for the children of Sarah Carney – a 38-year-old single mum with two young daughters under the age of eight. Sarah has been diagnosed with
Stage 4 bile duct cancer, which has spread to her liver, lungs and bones.
