Supporter completes the 55 mile London to Brighton cycle ride for Paul Strickland Scanner Centre
A supporter from Rickmansworth has raised £350 for Paul Strickland Scanner Centre in Northwood by cycling the London to Brighton cycle ride earlier this month.
Philip Gibbs, a 65-year-old retired Head Teacher, took part in the London to Brighton Cycle Ride, on Sunday 11 September 2022. The ride from Clapham Common, London to Brighton seafront was a distance of 55 miles and a climb of over 3,000 feet over the infamous Ditchling Beacon over the South Downs.
Any money raised will go towards providing very high-quality, next-generation cancer imaging services at Paul Strickland Scanner Centre, located at Mount Vernon Hospital in Northwood. The scanner centre operates as an independent medical charity and is a recognised centre of excellence and world leader in CT-MRI and PET-CT imaging for cancer.
Philip says “I have been a supporter of Paul Strickland Scanner Centre for a number of years and wanted to do something different to raise funds for them this year. I was really pleased with the ride. It’s the third time I’ve done it in a year! After a 6.30am start from Clapham Common in the fog I cycled through London, through Surrey and down to Sussex. Over the North Downs and then over Ditchling Beacon on the South Downs, a notoriously steep and long hill, I completed the ride in the sunshine on Brighton Seafront.”
