Royal Denbigh Lodge Raises Money in Support of Gobowen Hospital

Bro. Rob Hammond of Royal Denbigh Lodge helped to raise money, alongside his fellow cyclists from the Golden Lion in Llangynhafal, by undertaking a long distance ride – The Goldie Ride. This year they rode from the W.A.G. in Cardiff to home in support of Gobowen Hospital. The reason for choosing Gobowen Hospital as their charity this year is that they saved the life of a daughter one of their cyclists, who lives in Gellifor, by removing a tumour on her spine – tricky stuff.

As recently as this summer two friends of Rob’s were treated at Gobowen having been knocked down and badly hurt after the Denbigh and Flint show, so the hospital is important as our regional Orthapaedic Centre, even if it is (just) in Shropshire.

The ride went well; the photo above is of the group from The Golden Lion in Llangynhafal at the hospital. They rode there on day 1 and then back from Cardiff over the next 3 days. The people in suits are surgeons, one of whom did the operation on one of the rider’s daughters to remove a tumour from her spine.

Group 4 contributed £100 towards a total of £15,000 donated to the hospital.
