The Great Weston Ride has announced a new partnership with Bristol & Weston Hospitals Charity.

For the past 12 years, this hugely-popular West Country cycling event has been raising money for Prostate Cancer UK, raising more than £300,000.

Great Weston Ride has teamed up with Bristol & Weston Hospitals CharityBut from next year the Great Weston Ride is keen to support a more local cause and has chosen Bristol & Weston Hospitals Charity.

The partnership will initially last three years and will help the charity bring more moments of joy, comfort and hope to those who need it most at the hospitals.

Ride organiser Darren McKimm said: “Having seen all the amazing things Bristol & Weston Hospitals Charity do for our hospitals, and also given the joint Bristol and Weston connections, partnering with them was a no-brainer.

“I know it’s a charity that will appeal to many of our riders and I hope we can raise a significant amount to help those having treatment at our hospitals.”

Laura Hewitt, our Community Engagement Manager, said: “From everyone at the charity I’d like to say a big thank you to the Great Weston Ride for choosing us as their new official charity partner.

“We’re really excited about this new partnership and can’t wait to have so many new faces joining #TeamBWHC.”

The next Great Weston Ride takes place on Sunday 23rd July. Also in the ride series are the Mendips Lakes and Lumps Ride (11th June) and the Great Exmoor Ride (September)
