Pedal power from Scotland to Spain for Weldmar
18th September 2019< BACK TO NEWS
Ross Longridge is a keen cyclist. He’s also recently retired as a firefighter in Dorset, so has a little more time on his hands.
Instead of pottering around the house and garden, Ross has decided to set himself a huge challenge – cycling all the way from John O’Groat’s, at the tip of Scotland, all the way to Gibralter, bordering southern Spain, which is a staggering 2,187 miles!
He’s doing it all in aid of Weldmar Hospicecare.
Ross’ dad sadly passed away at our in-patient unit in Dorchester ten years ago, and says the charity remain close to his heart, thanks to the care and support that Weldmar provided, not only to his Dad, but to the whole family, which really made a difference. He’s hoping that his efforts will help other families in the future.
The journey is expected to take around a month, and Ross is already on his way!
