In August last year Mike had a very sudden and unexpected cardiac arrest. Thankfully, he received amazing, life saving treatment from staff at Frome Sport and Fitness Gym (Fusion Lifestyle) and the crews of Dorset and Somerset and Wiltshire Air Ambulance Services. He was then able to receive equally amazing care and treatment from the NHS, at Bristol Royal Infirmary ICU and Cardiac Centre.

As you can imagine we are hugely grateful, and although we will never really be able to thank those involved enough, we have joined together with both Frome gym and Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance team to put on a fundraising event at Frome gym to raise essential funds for the Air Ambulance Charity.

Thanks to our fantastic family and friends we have 3 teams of people who are aiming to run and cycle the distance from Frome to Lands End (200 miles) in 8 hours, on Saturday 24th February 2024. We have set our fundraising target at £3,500 as we were told that this is the average cost of a single air ambulance call out.

Please support us to run, cycle and achieve our goal to raise these essential funds. That day in August we had no idea that we would need these services, but will always be thankful that they were there. Please help them continue to be available.

Thank you so much for your support. 

With much love Mike, Jackie, Erin, Tom & Jem xxxx
