Surgeon embarks on marathon bike-ride

Written by on 14th May 2010. Posted in News

Retired Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon (Neath & Swansea) Alun Clement is cycling solo from Land's End to John o'Groats to raise funds for TREAT Trust Wales.


He set off from Land's End on General Election day, Thursday 6th May 2010, and has now reached the Scottish border.

Early days were tougher than expected with decidedly unseasonable north-easterly headwinds in the South-West of England but, despite this, his schedule was maintained and along the Welsh Marches and North-West of England he made up time and is currently a day ahead of his original plans.

He has set up a donation page on the Just Giving site:-

Please support this tremendous effort, selflessly given for TREAT Trust Wales with as big a donation as you can – and if you are a UK taxpayer, please Gift Aid it so that Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs can contribute their 20 per cent as well.
