A father from Royal Wootton Bassett in Wiltshire cycled 54 miles from London to Brighton and raised an impressive £2,000 for the charity that helped his family.
Trevor Nesbit completed the cycle ride in aid of Ronald McDonald House Camberwell, which provides free ‘home away from home’ accommodation for families with children receiving treatment at King’s College Hospital in London.
Trevor is supporting Ronald McDonald House Camberwell as he has stayed at the House several times since his son Joshua, now age two, was diagnosed with a rare liver disease shortly after he was born. Joshua has been cared for by doctors and nurses at King’s College Hospital a number of times since he was diagnosed and is now on the waiting list for a liver transplant.
Trevor says: “The House was very comfortable and supportive, which was ideal at such a stressful time. With the House located close to the hospital I could be there for Josh whenever he needed me”.
Trevor set off at Clapham Common in the morning and finished at Brighton’s sea front in the afternoon, completing the challenge in 4 hours and 30 minutes.
Trevor adds: “I want to thank everyone who has donated so far. The support has been overwhelming and has made all the training and hard work worth it. I hope my fundraising will help Ronald McDonald House Charities support more families in their time of need.”
