London to Brighton

15th April 2021


UK COVID Deaths – Daily 30 / 7-Day average 30

Total UK COVID Deaths within 28 days – 127,191

Total UK Deaths with COVID-19 on the death certificate – 150,419 (up to 2 Apr)



A quick post tonight as I wanted to let everyone know about my friend Gary’s fundraising project.


A lot of you will know Gary’s story – he spent 95 days in hospital last year after developing severe COVID pneumonitis. Forty-seven of these were spent in the Intensive Care Unit at Barnet Hospital, North London.


Gary has made a remarkable recovery which you can read more about in an earlier post –



On Saturday, Gary is cycling 54 miles from London to Brighton in order to demonstrate how far he has come in the past year and to raise money for the Intensive Care Unit that saved his life.


He has set up a Just Giving Page here – There are some good pictures and a great video of him leaving the hospital like a celeb!



Unfortunately he then realised that this funding page didn’t allow for Gift Aid and so he set up another one. If anyone would like to donate, please can you use this link as it will allow you to Gift Aid your donation:



Gary and I both thank you enormously for your support.

Wow, thank you so much for your response to my sponsored ride for Barnet Hospital ICU. I'm so grateful for the generous donations and kind messages of support.

I'm looking forward to the ride tomorrow and it looks like the sun will shine on us.

Due to Covid issues, we will be riding the equivalent distance and elevation of London to Brighton, but around the lanes of Hertfordshire.

We'll be calling in to Barnet Hospital at about 1:30pm to say thank-you in person to the amazing staff there. Best wishes, Gary 🚲 ♥️
