Rudridge employee races to raise money for local hospice

Published:  20 June, 2016

An employee from Rudridge is gearing up to take part in the Prudential Ride London-Surrey 100 to raise money for Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care in Farnham.

Mr Burrell, who works as an assistant manager at the civil engineering and groundworks specialist, will set off on 31 July from Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in East London to ride 100 miles to raise funds for the worthy cause.

Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care is the only hospice care service for adult patients, and their families, across the West Surrey and North East Hampshire area. For over 35 years it has provided support to the local community and needs to raise over £20,000 a day to continue operating.

Mr Burrell said: “I have been training extremely hard for the London-Surrey 100, and, although I am sure it will be incredibly tough, I am very much looking forward to the challenge and raising as much money as possible for such an important and worthwhile charity.”
