Artic team ‘Cycle to Dover’ raising funds for Darent Valley Hospital

Dartford-based hard facilities management services company, Artic, has taken part in the ‘Cycle to Dover’ fundraising event, a warm-up for the ‘Cycle to Amsterdam’ Ride4Life that is taking place 12-16 June 2019, and raised over £600 for the hospital’s Valley Hospital Charity.

The charity is raising funds for its ‘Little Buds’ Special Care Baby Unit and also to buy a new Hologic Imaging 3D Breast Scanner.

In just 2017/18, through fund-raising efforts like this, the impact is that cancer patients are living 40 per cent longer than just 10 years ago, over 500 babies have been cared for in SCBU, and over £348,000 has been raised by the charity.

On June 12, the Artic team will ‘Cycle to Amsterdam’ on real bikes, a total of 340 miles, with the aim to raise as much money for the hospital as possible. Currently they have raised over £4,000 through the generosity of friends and suppliers and are hoping to break their target of £10,000.
