On Saturday 7th April Gillian, from our Client Services team, will be taking part in the Tour De Bristol – an amazing 100 km cycle ride in aid of St Peter’s Hospice.
St Peter’s Hospice is Bristol’s only adult hospice caring for local people with life-limiting illnesses. Their commitment is to improve the quality of life of patients while extending care and support to their families and loved ones. All of their care is provided free of charge, but it costs us around £20,000 a day to provide that care.
Gillian and her husband have been training hard for the event with regular rides alongside a gruelling fitness regime at the gym!
“When you’ve just completed a 45 minute spin session and the instructor says “Who’s going to do the Tour de Bristol next year?” , saying Yes seems the right response. Fast forward to March 2018 – we had forgotten all about it and now it’s only weeks away. Despite the snow and wind forecast for the weekend we will be back on our bikes trying to get the training miles in. I have never cycled that distance before, not in one day anyway, but armed with bananas, chocolate, and an anticipated burst of adrenalin I’m sure it will be fine!”
Hopefully she’ll still be able to walk afterwards – we need her back in the office on Monday!

Good luck Gillian!!!
