On Sunday, 25th September 2016, 2 King’s Bench Walk’s cycling team took part in a 45 mile cycle ride through the beautiful Chalke Valley in Salisbury. The aim was to raise money for Horatio’s Garden, our charity of choice.
Horatio’s Garden is a charity that creates and lovingly cares for, beautiful accessible gardens in NHS spinal injury centres.
Leading garden designers develop the stunning sanctuaries for patients and their family and friends, creating an environment which becomes an integral part of their lives and care whilst spending many months in hospital.
Spinal cord injuries are catastrophic, life-changing events. Patients often have little or no access to the outside world during their hospital stay, yet research shows that at times of stress, being outside with nature contributes to a feeling of wellbeing.
We were proud to be a part of the 130 cyclists, supporting this important charity.
