Posted on in Fundraising, Services

Intrepid and charitable members of Middlesbrough Erimus Rotary Club got on their bikes and rode 110 miles in three days to help the Teesside Cystic Fibrosis Centre, based at The James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough.

Grace, who is three years old, was on hand to help staff receive the donation from the club’s president Malcolm Bareham and members who took part in the three-day journey from Morecambe to Marske .

Pat Cole, from the Teesside Cystic Fibrosis Centre, said “This was a fantastic achievement by all the cyclists from the Middlesbrough Erimus Rotary club.  We know how hard a journey it was and felt it fitting to buy an exercise cycle for the paediatric wards. The donation was so generous they were also able to donate two electronic nebulisers for the cystic fibrosis patients. Many thanks and congratulations to all the riders.”
