Coast to coast cycle for mental health

A health worker from our trust has cycled the width of the country to raise awareness of mental health.

Together with five other riders David Liversidge, Occupational Therapy Technical Instructor at RDaSH, pedalled over 120 miles from Morecambe on the west coast to Whitby on the east in support of the charity Mind.

David said: “Each rider has been touched by the effects of mental health to some degree. This incredible journey was about helping others who may be struggling in silence with their mental health while at the same time promoting awareness of the work that RDaSH does to support them.

“We’ve ridden over some really rugged terrain but it was worth it to be able to do something positive. We smashed our target and raised over £3,000 for our chosen charity.”

The cyclists set out on Saturday July 7 from Morecambe and rode through the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and the North Yorkshire Moors, finally finishing by the sea in Whitby greeted by friends and family.
