Three members of staff at the Lister raised over £2,200 for the East and North Hertfordshire Hospitals’ Charity by taking part in the London to Brighton cycle.

Keith Harrison, Allan Horn and Jason Crowe, known collectively as the Pedalling Porters, cycled the challenging 55 mile route from the city to the coast, passing through beautiful Sussex countryside.

2019 marked the third time the Pedalling Porters have completed the London to Brighton cycle for the Hospitals’ Charity. The funds raised this year are in support of men’s health projects, including the da Vinci Single Port, a robotic arm that attaches to the current surgical robot at the Lister, allowing surgeons to perform complex surgery through a single one inch incision, whilst leaving a shorter recovery time for the patients.

Talking after the cycle, Keith Harrison said:

“Having worked at the Lister for over 10 years, and being keen cyclists, the London to Brighton cycle is the perfect way for the Pedalling Porters to give something back to the Hospital. It was a lovely day this year making it a thoroughly enjoyable ride, and we are looking forward to taking on further cycling challenges to raise money for the Hospitals’ Charity.”
