The Royal College of Nursing’s HR chief has raised more than £4,500 for charity after completing a bike ride from London to Bournemouth.
David Cooper took part in the gruelling 130 mile journey from central London through Surrey, Hampshire and Wiltshire to the seaside town of Bournemouth this weekend, to arrive in time for the organisation’s annual congress this week.
Cooper was joined by executive director Janet Davies and Tim Goulbourn, finance director. The money will go to Dementia UK.
Cooper said: “The ride was certainly a challenge, but knowing that it has helped raise much-needed funds for such a worthy cause makes the pain worthwhile.
“As well as raising money for a great charity it has given us the opportunity to boost the college’s green credentials by getting out in the open and to travel to our annual Congress in one of the greenest and healthiest ways possible.”
Dementia UK promotes, supports and trains nurses who help to provide care for people with dementia and their families.
