Hospital Director gets on his bike for charity

24 Aug 2010 11:55:41


Chief of Service Transformation Mark Trumper swapped a hard hat for a bike helmet to complete a gruelling London to Paris cycle for a children’s health charity.

In his role at the hospital Mark is responsible for transforming healthcare across infrastructure, technology and service delivery. Whilst his key focus at the moment might be the modernisation of the
main entrance, he needed lycra for his latest challenge - cycling to France on behalf of Action Medical
Research.

Mark managed to complete the 300 mile cycle ride to Paris in just four days.

He said: “It was hard work, but being a parent I really appreciate the work of this amazing charity.”

More than 700 riders joined Mark on the finish line and are collectively expected to raise in excess of £1m. This will fund new research in a potential new vaccine against bacterium that causes
meningitis and pneumonia, as well as ongoing work into preventing premature births as part of the
charity’s ‘touching tiny lives‘ appeal.

Mark explained: “It was a great experience and quite dramatic to see so many cyclists at the finish
united in their efforts to raise money for the charity. Along the way I was lucky enough to enjoy
some beautiful scenery, some shocks and surprises and get a few blisters but it was definitely worth it!”

Mark has personally raised more than £1500 for the charity and can still be sponsored online at: www.action.org.uk/sponsor/marktrumper
