Gary Frost, Operations Director at Illuma was 1 of 6 cyclists who set off on an ambitious charity challenge – to ride their bikes 90 miles – to Skegness in 6-7 hours!
Gary along with five others set out to undertake the sponsored cycle ride in a bid to raise money to support the E39 ward at Nottingham Queens Medical Centre Hospital. The E39 ward is the Children’s Oncology ward and deals with children who have treatable and terminal cancer.
The charity ride took place on September 7th, where the team set off from Stapleford to embark on the 90 mile journey to Skegness, with the aim of reaching the seaside town in just 6-7 hours.
Fortunately the weather was kind and the rain held off, making the teams efforts that bit easier along the way. The team looked set to arrive within their target time as they neared the finish line but with strong head winds towards the latter stages of the ride, the team completed the journey a little over 7 hours. A great effort all round nevertheless!

It is hoped Gary and the other cyclists’ efforts, will raise a substantial amount of money to support the E39 ward at Nottingham Queens Medical Centre Hospital whilst helping to publicise and support the Nottingham Hospitals Charity. All donations will help provide improved facilities, equipment, research and staff development.
A big ‘well done’ to all involved for successfully completing the charity bike ride, for such a worthy cause!
