Cycle Festival for Jessie May at Nuffield Health North Bristol this Saturday

On April 27th, the amazing team at Nuffield Health, North Bristol, will be hosting a Cycle Festival to support Charlotte’s fundraising for Jessie May. Four Spin classes will run throughout the morning, with all genres of music covered ‘festival style’.

This is an open event, so non-members can attend making a suggested donation of £5 to join in! Classes start at 8.30am, to join in simply call The Nuffield.

The Jessie May charity provides hospice at home care for terminally ill children in Bristol and the surrounding area. The charity was set up by the parents of Jessica May Purrington, a little girl who died at home aged 4 months, surrounded by her family and her nurses. The Jessie May charity now has a team of dedicated nurses who provide care to children and families during a child’s life and after their death.

This fundraiser is part of a much bigger fundraising effort from Frampton Cotterell resident, Charlotte Jarrett, who is raising funds for the charity as part of the wider effort of  her employer – Clifton Down Shopping Centre, which nominated Bristol-based Jessie May as their ‘Charity Partner for 2018/19’ – by taking up the challenge to cycle from London to Paris with Global Adventures. The 311 miles ride will be completed over four days. Charlotte has pledged to raise a minimum of £1,600 but, with some great support behind her, she knows even more can be raised for Jessie May.

Of the challenge ahead, Charlotte commented:  ‘I worked with Jessie May a few years ago, funnily enough another bike challenge! At the time one of my colleagues was benefitting from the great care Jessie May Nurses provide – actually they still are. Seeing and hearing the great support this one family out of so many they care for receives, really spurs you on. 311 miles is actually nothing in comparison to what Jessie May families experience’.
