Steve and Carol Hamp set off on the 1st of September to cycle 1200 miles, unsupported on the national cycle network, from Lands End to John O’Groats. 

The intrepid couple are cycling in memory of Carol’s Mum, Sadie Durman, who died earlier in 2017and hoped to raise £1,000 for the Friends of St Cross as Carol's Mum received a lot of care and support over the last 10 years at the Hospital of St Cross. They planned to complete the trip by the end of September which they did and raised an amazing £2,176 (including Gift Aid).

Willy Goldschmidt, Chairman of the Friends of St Cross, said “we are amazed by the challenges that our supporters take on to raise funds for the Friends and are most grateful to them and all their supporters who help us continue to make a difference for patients of the Hospital and the local community and mental health services. Thank you Steve and Carol.  I'm glad you enjoyed the adventure."
