A PRESTATYN based company will be enduring a challenging 22 mile bike ride to raise funds for a new kidney dialysis machine for Alder Hey Children’s Hospital.
Four riders from Bebbington & Wilson LTD are taking part to raise funds for a new Dialysis machine for the hospital’s D2 ward where Louise Spinks, the daughter of Bebbington & Wilson’s Contracts Manager, Chris Spinks has recently undergone treatment.
Bebbington & Wilson Director, Ray Wilson, a keen cyclist, organised the team and the charity bike ride which includes staff from a variety of different departments, said: “The route will test our stamina and endurance but we are sure everyone will complete the route and we hope local people will come out along the way to cheer us on.
“We have already raised £1500 so far and we hope to double that by the time we cross the finishing line on July 18.”
Louise is only 18 months old and has already undergone multiple operations, chemotherapy and radiotherapy to remove a tumour after being diagnosed with a stage three Wilms tumour in August last year. She is now awaiting a kidney transplant but despite all that she has gone through, Chris and his wife Bethan, from Abergele, say Louise hasn’t stopped smiling. This inspired them to set up the Louise Spinks D2 Fund.
The team will be cycling a total of 22 miles, leaving the office at Bastion Road and cycling out of Prestatyn up the hill in to Dyserth, down past Rhuddlan Castle, along the River Elwy bank into Rhyl and back along the promenade to the office in Prestatyn.
