ROYAL Air Force nurses cycled for 24 hours at Queen Alexandra Hospital to raise charity cash.

The RAF medics, who work at QA to build up clinical skills ahead of deploying to warzones, pedalled an exercise bike more than 400 miles in a gruelling stunt to raise £1,115 for QA’s Rocky Appeal and forces’ charity Combat Stress which helps servicemen and women deal with post-traumatic stress disorder.

Nurses took turns cycling for an hour at a time to complete the marathon effort.

Jon Hall, who is the squadron leader for the RAF nurses at QA, took his turn from 5am to 6am.

He said: ‘It was very tiring, especially that time of the morning.

‘Everyone did fantastically well.’
