Calling all keen cyclists! MedEquip4Kids is offering you the exclusive opportunity to take part in the Chris Hoy 100 Sportive  absolutely free of charge (it normally costs £35 to participate). Organised by Evans Cycles, the challenge is to complete a 100 mile or 100km cycle around the Cheshire countryside.

The event takes place on Sunday 2nd July and starts and finishes at Arley Hall and Gardens, Northwich CW9 6NA. Start time is 08.30 – 9.30am.

All we ask is that you support our local hospitals in Greater Manchester by asking people to sponsor you and raising as much as you can for the MedEquip4Kids Appeal. The appeal was launched following the devastating terror attack on Manchester Arena to raise £100,000 to make sure hospitals in Greater Manchester are fully equipped to provide emergency treatment, rehabilitation and long-term care to children and young people in the event of such incidents.

To register on the event ASAP, either complete the form on our event page, email us your details to, or ring Clare or Sarah on 0161 798 1600. NB: only registration via MedEquip4Kids will guarantee your free place! For more details about the event, click here.

“Infections of the central nervous system need urgent and appropriate treatment. Most laboratory methods can take from 24 to 48 hours for diagnosis of bacterial meningitis and three to seven days for diagnosis of viral meningitis or encephalitis. The new equipment will mean we can get results of these tests in around an hour. We’ll be able to inform the clinicians of a positive result, allowing targeted therapy and reassurance to the patients and families. Just as important is the reporting of negative results, which may enable treatment withdrawal and possibly a shorter hospital stay.”
