Press Release- MP’s Fleur Anderson and Rosena Allin-Khan’s London to Brighton Cycle
Wandsworth MPs to cycle from London to Brighton in September for hospital fundraiser.

Fleur Anderson, Labour MP for Putney, said:
‘This is not going to be easy, and it’s the furthest either of us have ever ridden, but we love a challenge, and raising money for the St George’s Trust is such a great cause. So many of us in Putney, Southfields and Roehampton rely on St George’s and Queen Mary’s for treatment and this is a great way to give back.’
The appeal is transforming Children’s Services and the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at St George’s Hospital and aims to raise £5 million by 2024. St George’s outstanding care is world renowned, and this hospital is the place that parents rely on when the worst happens to their children. Our children and their families deserve the best environment to match that care and support.
Dr Rosena Allin-Khan, Labour MP for Tooting, said:
‘We’re so excited to meet this huge challenge of cycling all the way from Clapham down to the seafront in Brighton. The brilliant the staff at our St George’s work tirelessly for their patients, and it’s fantastic that we can help fundraise for this transformation project.’
The London to Brighton cycle in September sees thousands of participants cycle 55 miles, either as part of fundraising teams or individually. The MPs will be joined by over 70 fundraisers as part of Team St George’s, ranging from paediatric staff to porters and surgeons.

Molly Simpson, Senior Public Fundraising Manager at St George’s Hospital Charity said:
‘We are delighted to have Rosena and Fleur join our London to Brighton Cycle Team. They are joining over 70 other fundraisers who are supporting our Time for a Change appeal. We couldn’t be more excited for the event in September and to see how much we raise!’
