Jeremy Tym, is riding from Land’s End to John o’Groats to help purchase a Jumbulance.

Jeremy Tym

  In October, Jeremy will be one of six men taking on the endurance challenge, cycling approximately 1000 miles in just 14 days, in the hope of raising £20,000 towards a new Jumbulance which makes travel possible for adults and children who are disabled or have serious or complex health conditions.

  “For the past 2 years I’ve been a volunteer on the yearly ski trip to Austria.  I’ve seen the huge difference it makes to people’s lives – witnessing the fun and excitement that this trip brings to people and hearing of its importance in their lives sets us all up for the year ahead.

  I’d never been on a pair of skis before and I’ve also never cycled more than about 20 miles, but the Jumbulance Trust needs a new vehicle to help continue this vital work so we thought we’d try and help out.”

  All the men, a plasterer, a BT engineer, a dental student, Jumbulance drivers and Jeremy, an Accident and Emergency nurse at the Northern General Hospital, will use two weeks of their annual leave in a bid to achieve their goal.
