Proud Dad Matthew’s Doak is planning to take on the Coast-to-Coast Bike Ride in aid of The Great North Children’s Hospital Foundation and MediCinema.
Matthew’s son Henry has had many visits to The Great North Children’s Hospital over the past 18 months and multiple operations. After seeing the courage of his young son, Matthew was inspired to take on a challenge to thank the teams that looked after Henry.
“As parents we could not be prouder of how well Henry has coped with all that he has been through. It has been such a tough time for the family, but Henry has taken it all in his stride showing immense courage and always keeping a smile on his face. Because of this I wanted to challenge myself by taking on the Coast to Coast bike ride starting at Whitehaven and finishing in Sunderland, all in aid of The Great North Children’s Hospital & MediCinema.”
“During the time we spent at the hospital it became apparent just how wonderful the staff at the RVI are. They provided amazing care and support throughout not just for Henry but for our whole family and we are so grateful to them for that and all the amazing work they do. ”
