A group of adventurers from the health and fitness industries in Kent have got together to arrange a charity cycle ride for Macmillan Cancer Support. 

The group, which includes paramedics and accident and emergency nurses, have all been effected by cancer.

They will now cycle more than 400 miles from Ho chi min city in Vietnam to Siem Reap in Cambodia this November to raise money for the charity. 

A total of 10 women will make the journey including Caroline Simmons who’s husband was recently diagnosed with cancer. 

They group say that they hope the event will show their thanks and appreciation for the support the charity has given them.

“What really touched us was the support that we both got from the Macmillan nurses from beginning to now, not just in clinical and practical ways, it was the emotional support they gave to both of us,” said Caroline.

The trip is self-funded which means all the proceeds made will go straight to the charity. 

The 10 women have already raised £3,000 out of their £5,000 target.
