Coronavirus survivor Andrew Unwin and his dad Derek are going to cycle 35 miles, setting off from Darent Valley Hospital (DVH) where NHS staff saved his life when he was infected with COVID-19.

This is to raise money for Valley Hospital Charity to thank NHS staff for their hard work over the past 6 months against the COVID-19 pandemic. Andrew feels like he owes his life to the NHS staff at DVH where he suffered from two punctured lungs and had to spend 10 days in intensive care (7 of those of a ventilator) as a result of being infected with COVID-19. Andrew and Derek are going to set off from DVH at 9:00am on the 26th of September cycling a 35 mile round trip, stopping off at his half-way point at the O2 arena for refreshments then back to DVH. The father and son team have already raised 163% of their target making their fundraising total amount an amazing £980!
