A nursery nurse in Hemel Hempstead has raised £2,500 for the East of England Ambulance Trust by cycling from her home to Lands’ End on a cycle bike at home, covering a distance of 320.1 miles.
Layla Mitchell, currently staying at home during the pandemic due to her being in a vulnerable group, had to cycle a gruelling 23 miles every day!
So far, she has raised £2,500 for the Trust.
Layla said: “I just wanted to thank every one of you for your hard work. Not just during the COVID-19 outbreak, but for every single day that you turn up for work.”
Layla’s generosity did not end there, as she also created large hampers filled with treats to support our staff.
Layla was inundated with companies offering to help fill the hampers, allowing her to create 24 hampers in all. This ensured that not only did our ambulance stations receive hampers, but also other emergency services, with Hemel Fire and Police stations enjoying the bounty
Jonathan Perry, Assistant General Manager Mid Hertfordshire said: “The amount of effort and time this has taken Layla, not mention the hard graft is absolutely amazing. She has donated a tremendous amount of food and other goodies to staff at WHAS which we really appreciate.”
