Medical support transforming lives

My Ride London - over £2,300 raised

Published: 17 August 2020


Lorna Votier, Development Director of The Victoria Foundation, and several supporters of TVF took part in My Ride London 46 on Sunday 16th August and have raised over £2,300 which will help TVF to go on making a difference to families and medical students. It was a great ride from Richmond Park, Roehampton, Putney, Wandsworth, Westminster, Vauxhall, Chelsea, Hammersmith, Chiswick, Kew, St Margaret’s, Twickenham, Bushy Park, Hampton Court, Esher, Kingston, Petersham and finally Richmond Riverside!  A huge thank you to Doris, Mike, Julie, Tessa, Mark and Klaus and all those who so generously sponsored the team members. 

It's not too late to sponsor Lorna NOW 

How your donation could help

  •   £80 could provide a textbook for a medical student 
  • £250 could provide a toolkit grant to fund study materials and travel costs to a hospital placement for a medical student
  • £550 could provide a trike for a youngster helping them to keep active, gain independence and reach their potential in these such challenging times

As with so many of the UK’s charities the COVID-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on TVF's fundraising with the cancellation of events and the loss of income at a time when families and medical students need the charity most.  Events like these are so important to TVF - if you would like to take part in a 25km trek in aid of TVF on 12th September please get in touch NOW - it will adhere to social distancing and you can do it on the 12th or on a date and time that suits you.
