Biking for Billy heads west

Charity / Wed 16th Oct 2013 am31 11:36am

AN INTREPID team of cyclists are cycling from Harlow to the the Republic of Ireland and all for a great cause.

Earlier this year, Church Langley residents Alissa and James’ Ashworth little boy Billy was born asleep on the 14th February – unfortunately Billy suffered from a number of fatal fetal abnormalities which were diagnosed at the 12 week scan.

From the moment that the family found out that Billy’s condition was fatal, they received fantastic support from the teams at the Princess Alexandra Hospital, Harlow and the University College Hospital London.

A family member said: “Both hospitals helped us through every stage of our journey and for this reason we decided that we wanted to do something to help them continue to provide the same kind of support we received.

“Bike for Billy is a charity cycle ride that will raise money for the Neonatal Unit in Harlow and the Fetal Medicine Unit, University College Hospital London. Every penny we raise will make a difference. If you believe that what we’re doing is a worthy cause then please use this link to sponsor us.”

On the 14th October six riders set off from the Princess Alexandra Hospital, Harlow on a 350 mile ride to Carrick on Suir, Co Tipperary with a goal of completing the distance in five days.

The Bike for Billy riders:
James Ashworth, Simon Parrish, Mark Reed, James Conway, Maurice Conway and Leo Commins

We will catch up each day with the teambikingforbilly
