Enable Law Organises Bristol to Bath Cycle4Sepsis Bike Ride
2 Min Read
We’re delighted that some of our lawyers have gathered a “Friends of Enable” group to take part in a Bristol to Bath charity bike ride to raise money for the UK Sepsis Trust as part of their Cycle4Sepis fundraising initiative.
The 30 to 45-mile mixed ability cycle ride has been organised by partner Paul Sankey. Participants include Enable Law staff, barristers, independent financial advisors and others, plus Enable Law’s sepsis survivor client and recipient of the UK Sepsis Trust’s support, Stuart Malpass.
Cycle4Sepsis is a fundraising initiative set up by the UK Sepsis Trust to support those affected by sepsis. In the UK, Sepsis kills more people than breast, bowel and prostate cancers combined every year. The Cycle4Sepsis bike ride raise vital awareness of the condition, and the warning signs to look out for.
Stuart lives with his family in the West Midlands. Before contracting sepsis and requiring partial amputation of his thumb and two fingers, Stuart worked as a prison officer.
On the opportunity to raise awareness and money for the UK Sepsis Trust Stuart said:
“As a survivor of sepsis, I feel very honoured to be able to help raise money for the UK Sepsis Trust, especially considering just over 4 years ago I couldn’t even walk, let alone ride a bike. The UK Sepsis Trust introduced me to my nearest support group and connected me with Enable Law. Prior to my illness I hadn’t even heard of sepsis or how potentially life threatening it was. With over 45,000 deaths in the UK every year, raising awareness is paramount.”
Sarah Hamilton-Fairley, Director of Strategy and Development at the UK Sepsis Trust comments:
“We are absolutely delighted to have the support of Enable Law for Cycle4Sepsis and are encouraging as many as possible to get involved and sign up! It’s been designed to attract all sorts – families with mixed abilities and ages, individuals who like to take it easy, and those who are more competitive and professional. The event isn’t just about fundraising it’s also an opportunity to raise awareness of sepsis within communities, empowering people with knowledge of this medical emergency. Knowing what to look out for has the potential to save literally thousands of lives.”
