TSP are taking on the Coast to Coast Charity Bike Ride

TSP are taking on the Coast to Coast Charity Bike Ride!

Lycra at the ready, those crazy folks at TSP are at it again!! And this time they have enlisted friends from Genetec & Commend.

To raise some much-needed funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital, 9 riders (including TSP’s SMT) will embark on a Coast to Coast, 150-mile bike challenge with a WHOPPING 10,600ft Elevation. The ride will take the team from Whitehaven to Newcastle, taking in the Lake District, Cumbria and the North Pennines. This challenging route, which incorporates Hartside Pass, one of England’s longest climbs at a respectable 580m above sea level, is no mean feat! And to add to the fun this 3-day journey commences during the April shower season.

So, whilst our riders come to terms with what they have just signed up to, all we ask is that you donate what you can to help us raise £10k for Great Ormond Street Hospital, it may only be a drop in the bucket but every penny counts!

About Great Ormond Street

Every day, around 750 seriously ill children and young people are seen at Great Ormond Street Hospital from all over the UK.

Every day, young lives hang in the balance as patients, families and staff battle the most complex illnesses. Every day, the brightest minds come together to achieve pioneering medical breakthroughs that change the lives of thousands of children – and change the world.

Despite the greatest challenges a child can face, the hospital is a place where being sick does not always mean being sad. And it’s a place where you’ll find – today and every day – some of the bravest people you could ever meet.

Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity supports the hospital and its patients by funding four key areas:

  • Rebuilding and Refurbishment
  • Support for Families and Children
  • Research into Children’s Health
  • Life-saving Medical Equipment
