Georgia Pritchard I will be cycling 1000 miles from Land’s End to John O’Groats over 12 days, from October 18th - 29th 2020. I will be completing the cycling alone, and all the moneys raised will be donated to the DSAA, a charity very close to my heart.

I’ve wanted to be a paramedic from the age of 14, and now I have achieved that goal, I wish to support the ambulance service and my patients in every way I possibly can. I have seen first hand the life saving medical intervention the DSAA facilitate, whilst working out of my local ambulance station full time as a paramedic. I was truly shocked and saddened to initially discover the DSAA receive no government funding, but rely solely on charity based events, such as mine, to continue serving the local and wider communities. This is what motivated me to arrange this event. Everybody should have access to the best medical and traumatic intervention and new equipment, which only the air ambulance can provide in the pre-hospital setting. This includes blood products, and more advanced procedures that regular road paramedics such as myself are unable to perform pre-hospitally, including surgical airways and thoracostomy’s. The DSAA inspire me every day, and I’m sure you’ll agree, this life saving treatment shouldn’t come at a cost, but unfortunately it does, and you and me are the only ones keeping it alive.

My route is as follows:
18/10 Lands’ End – Launceston 79miles
19/10 Launceston – Tiverton 51miles
20/10 Tiverton – Latteridge 89miles
21/10 Latteridge – Ludlow 75miles
22/10 Ludlow – Crewe 67miles
23/10 Crewe – Preston 61miles
24/10 Preston – Carlisle 97miles
25/10 Carlisle – Biggar 73miles
26/10 Biggar – Balloch 60miles
27/10 Balloch – Spean Bridge 94miles
28/10 Spean Bridge – Tain 87miles
29/10 Tain – John O’Groats 85miles

If you've been kind enough to donate, I cannot be more thankful and appreciative to you, and can assure you 100% of your contribution will go direct to DSAA to continue saving lives, including yours and mine. Georgia Pritchard
