Synergy Director, David Sorbie has just completed a London Victoria to Paris cycle ride as part of the John Lewis Partnership Property Services and supply chain team in support of the charity. The ride took place over three days from London Victoria to L’arc de Triomphe in Paris. In total, there were 24 riders aiming to raise £20,000.00. The cyclists were helped by two support vehicles, one that provided signage and directions and the other that provided food, drink and general support .Synergy would like to congratulate all of the riders who took part and donations can still be made at http://www.justgiving.com/David-Sorbie.
ECHO’s mission is to provide support for children and young people with heart conditions who receive treatment at the Evelina Children’s Hospital and the outreach clinics at local General Hospitals attended by Evelina Cardiologists. We also extend a lifeline to their family & carers. We are here to provide information, friendship and moral support from infancy to adulthood, especially at times of high anxiety for the patient and/or his or her family/carers as well as to supply equipment to the hospital which will improve the patient/family experience both as an inpatient and at home. Our close working relationship with the hospital enables us to provides vital patient voice to help Guy’s & St Thomas’s NHS Trust shape its services for congenital heart disease.
