7. Circulation Foundation Fundraising

The Outer Hebrides Challenge 2021

Huge CONGRATULATIONS to our very own Vice President, Emma Waldegrave, who completed the Outer Hebrides Cycle Challenge 2021 in a bid to raise much-needed awareness and funding for the Circulation Foundation.  

The team of vascular surgeons, nurses and healthcare scientists completed the gruelling 185-mile cycle challenge in October. Initially aiming to raise £8,000 to go towards the funding and promotion of research into the causes, prevention, and treatment of vascular disease, the team smashed this target and have raised an amazing £10,292 to date.


"Multiple times each and every day of the trip, in between groans and winces from sore quads and achy backs, someone called out for an update on the JustGiving page, it became a comical obsession! We all agree it was absolutely worth it and we want to thank all of you so so much, it really means a lot!!"

                                                                                                                                Emma Waldegrave.

September was Vascular Awareness Month and the Circulation Foundation's #TheBodyWalk national campaign saw teams walking, running, cycling and swimming to raise awareness of vascular disease and raise imperative funding.

Leicester Vascular Unit topped the distance leader board with a whopping 2499 miles completed during the 4-week challenge.

GSTT  Vascular Unit came out on top of the donation leader board having raised £1850

Congratulations and thank you to all our members who took part or donated!
