Get involved Events My Prudential RideLondon We’re inviting you to get on your bike – or scooter, skateboard, trike, tandem, penny farthing, unicycle – to fundraise for Royal Surrey County Hospital Charity as part of a campaign to help save the UK’s charities. Register > About My Prudential RideLondon The Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on charities, with the UK charity sector facing an estimated £10 billion shortfall in funding. It’s also meant thousands of events across the country have been cancelled, including Prudential RideLondon: the world’s greatest festival of cycling, which has raised more than £77 million for thousands of charities since it began in 2013. While it can’t go ahead as planned this year, we are keeping the wheels moving and celebrating the festival weekend of 15 and 16 August with a virtual event: My Prudential RideLondon. Its aim is to inspire and engage everyone, of all ages and abilities, to get on their bikes, scooters, skateboards, trikes, tandems, penny farthings, unicycles – in fact any form of non-motorised wheeled transport! – to raise much-needed funds for their favourite charities. How can I get involved? We’d love you to join #TeamRoyalSurrey and be a part of it – just follow these four simple steps: Register: visit myridelondon.co.uk and select your challenge. There are three cycling distances to choose from (19 mile, 46 mile or 100 mile), or you can invent your own My FreeCycle wheeled challenge over 1km. Fundraise: set up your fundraising page and let people know you’re supporting us so they can sponsor you. Participate: set your wheels in motion and complete your challenge anywhere, at any time, over the weekend of 15 and 16 of August. Nominate: encourage your family and friends to take part and help save the UK’s charities. Spread the word on social media too by using the hashtag #MyPRL when posting about the event - don't forget to tag us so we can share your photos! Why support your local NHS charity? The COVID-19 crisis has meant that a number of fundraising events and opportunities for us to raise money have been cancelled or postponed. As our amazing NHS fights the pandemic, we need your help now more than ever to make sure we can be there for patients and staff now, and for years to come. Why not choose to get on your bike to support our Closer to Care campaign, which is transforming care for premature and sick babies at Royal Surrey? We are so close to reaching our £500,000 goal but we still have just under £50,000 to raise, and we need your help to get us over the final hurdle. Alternatively, you can fundraise for the area of greatest need in the hospital, or for a particular ward or department. To make sure we allocate your fundraising to the correct area of the hospital, please add a line on your fundraising page to say where you'd like donations to go. Register > Already registered?
