Dr Angus Robinson a Consultant Oncologist from here in Brighton is celebrating a rather special birthday by cycling 650 miles from Brighton to Edinburgh to raise money for Sussex Cancer Fund.
Here is what Angus has to say about his amazing birthday challenge…
“The Sussex Cancer Fund is a charity which provides hope and treatments for people with cancer through supporting research and development of clinical trials. As a Consultant
I want to raise awareness of the important work this charity does and so am cycling from Sussex Cancer Centre in Brighton up to Edinburgh Cancer Centre – 650 miles within 8 days, which will be a considerable personal challenge.
It will be an interesting circuitous route as I visit my school, University and other cancer centres that I have worked in, with a stop off at Nottingham Medical School, where I trained as a doctor.
This is also a celebration of turning 50 and a chance to say Hi and thank you to the amazing colleagues and NHS cancer centres that I have had the fortune to work with.”
