I am a GMB trade union regional organiser and the work sheet area I have responsibility for is the NHS and I am also an avid Heart listener and when I was aware that the charity we would be raising money for was the children's heart surgery in Leeds I knew I could be of help.
My idea is to cycle a map of the hospitals in the Yorkshire region and an initial count up, this would equate to 210 miles.
I will not be alone in the challenge as I want to ensure maximum opportunity to raise money and will be joined by a GMB team of reps and staff who will all sign up to partake in the cycle ride. We will have two bikes located in the Jubilee Wing of the Leeds General Infirmary.
I do know of friends who have and still have children looked after by the team in Leeds and they say how amazing they are.
I will update people on the exact location and times etc and if you want to support us on the day that would be great.
