The money raised by the RKH Foundation Bike Ride is making a huge difference for its good causes. Now that the money has been handed over to our charities, here is an update on their plans and progress.
At Bart’s hospital in Smithfield, Maggie’s is using the bike ride money to provide a new support centre that provides both a visual and functional counterpoint for the hospital.
An ultra-modern three storey townhouse uses the latest materials to maximise light and space creating a calm uplifting environment that is an ideal setting for the practical, emotional and social support Maggie’s offers to people with cancer and their family and friends.
This video explains much more about how the building’s modern design and construction complements Bart’s historic buildings.
The Hague school’s stated mission to ‘enjoy learning and achieve great things for yourself and others’ received a big boost from a huge cheque from the RKH Foundation that will transform a derelict caretaker’s lodge into a state of the art space for creative arts, science and family learning.
Head teacher Judy Coles said she was completely overwhelmed by the efforts of the cyclists and never imagined a six figure cheque to pay for renovation and refurbishment of the house.
See the story covered by East End Life. Chloe Miller, Nancy Johnson, Alistair Barrett, Mark Colgate and Neil Hanrahan all visited the school to present the cheque for £139,750.
