Sarah gets on her bike for charity

An NHS manager from Farnham is gearing up for a 100km charity bike ride in aid of Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance later this month.

Sarah Casemore, Head of Primary Care Liaison at Guildford and Waverley Clinical Commissioning Group, has signed up for the Double 100 Cycle Challenge on June 23rd.

The 100-mile or 100km ride starts and finishes at the helicopter base at Redhill Aerodrome and cyclists can still enter the fundraising event.

Sarah said: “This charity supports the NHS and land ambulance service in airlifting sick or injured patients efficiently and in a timely manner to the most appropriate hospital for the individual involved.

“I’ve witnessed patients being taken from the GP surgery by Air Ambulance, especially children, so I know first hand the importance and vital role this service provides.

“I feel passionately that this charity could save the life of any of my friends, family or colleagues as it covers Surrey residents and needs as much funding as possible.”

Sarah, 41, completed the London to Brighton bike ride last year and will be joined by friend James Scott Brown when she takes on the Double 100.

She added: “We need to promote this ride as it really could be any friend, family member, colleague or community member who might need this team.”

The Double 100 is open to regular and occasional cyclists with feeding stations along the routes.

This year’s ride has kindly been sponsored by Howard Cundey Chartered Surveyors and Estate Agents, Asda, Warburtons and Wellbeing People. For more information call Julie Clare on 01622 833833 or email juliec@kssairambulance.org.uk
