Charity bike ride for Children’s Burns Unit to take place this weekend
The family and friends of a young patient who was treated at the Children’s Burns Unit will take on a cycling challenge from London’s East End to Broomfield Hospital’s East Entrance in thanks for her care on Saturday (July 14).
Anouk Leathes, aged one, was looked after by the Children’s Burns Unit team and at Burns ITU last year, and now the 20-strong group, coined ‘Team Noodle’, will cycle 75 miles from their home in Walthamstow, East London, to our hospital and back again to raise funds.
So far, they have reached a total of £1,500, with the fundraising drive led by Anouk’s aunt, Lauren Baskett.
Anouk’s dad, Tom, said: “Our daughter, Anouk Leathes, was treated at the Children’s Burns Unit (and the Burns ITU) last October. The care that she and our whole family received throughout was amazing. Anouk has now fully recovered, and we wanted to do something to say thank you to the Broomfield team, and help the unit in a small way.”
