Dust off your bike and take part! In aid of the Robert Grace Trust Emergency Fund – which provides support for Bloomsbury patients in need.
Why the Robert Grace Emergency Trust Fund
Robert Grace was a patient at the Bloomsbury Clinic, Mortimer Market Centre. The Trust was founded after he died to provide emergency funds for Bloomsbury patients as well as helping to support projects in his home country of South Africa.
The Robert Grace Trust Emergency Fund has been running for five years and is administered by the patient representatives. It helps Bloomsbury patients in emergencies and has paid for repairs, new locks, baby milk, groceries, a cooker, a fridge, bed, a mattress, school uniforms, and to subsidise travel and child care costs.
The RGT provides the patient representatives with a debit card which allows them to give small amounts of cash for emergencies on the day.
We are dependent on gifts to keep the RGT Emergency Fund afloat and are very grateful to clinicians, staff, patients and private donors who have contributed so far.
What about the ride?
On the 5th July we will lead a ride – or several if we are a big group – from London to Cambridge. That’s about 60 flat and easy miles. (100Km). Lunch by the river Cam and we return by train.
How will we raise funds?
We will set up a Justgiving page to make it easy to raise money. Of course we expect those who don’t ride to be very generous!
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you fancy taking part. Remember you still have got two months to get fit!
