Designed to raised funds to provide essential equipment for the North West Spinal Injuries Centre Rehabilitation Department, spinal injury staff and patients will take the next 10 weeks to participate in a simulated John O’Groats to Land’s End bike ride.
Using a variety of cycling equipment, patients and staff will cycle around 874 miles in a simulated ride to raise the much needed money. The money hopes to provide a chin controlled powered wheelchair and Functional Electrical Simulation (FES) bike to the unit.
Acknowledging the importance of spinal rehabilitation, Fletchers Solicitors’ Director Ed Fletcher has already been down to complete a mile and as a company they will be sponsoring our local spinal unit.
With an understanding for what can often be a difficult and lengthy rehabilitation process, it’s hoped that the money will provide this much needed equipment to help spinal recovery.
