Those halcyon days when pen and paper just worked!

Have your say

A team of staff, patients, friends and family will be cycling 200 miles in two days to raise £22,000 for a portable ultrasound device for the Southampton Paediatric Rheumatology Fund.

The Bow Tie Bike Ride team – named after the bow tie-shaped route – will set off from Southampton tomorrow and will travel through Winchester, Portsmouth and Poole before arriving back at Southampton Children’s Hospital the following day.

The cyclists will each cycle 200 miles over the course of the weekend in order to raise funds.
