'Tour de Heart' Wirral Heart Support Service Bike-a-thon

'Tour de Heart' Wirral Heart Support Service Bike-a-thon

With the excitement of the Tour de France starting in Yorkshire still in the air, Wirral Community NHS Trust's Heart Support Service held its own 'Tour de Heart' on Wednesday 16 July at Catherine's Health Centre Birkenhead, and raised £400 for charity.

The non-stop Bike-a-thon event saw 18 members of staff keep the pedals spinning for six continuous hours, covering an impressive 150km (the equivalent of a stage in the Tour de France) to raise money for the charity Wirral Heartbeat.

 

Wirral Heart Beat is an independent charity that provides much appreciated assistance to Wirral Heart Support Services based in SCHC. They have set up and are running seven outreach gyms for heart patients across Wirral and Ellesmere Port.

 

Wirral Heart Support, Service Lead, Frieda Rimmer said: "It was a great effort by all involved. The money is going to Wirral Heartbeat who continue to support us so magnificently by funding staff within the department. Heartbeat have been the cornerstone of everything we have achieved in the service. Thanks to their tireless fundraising efforts people benefit daily from a community cardiology service that is simply second to none in the country".
