The League of Friends was asked to consider a bid for a bespoke exercise bike
– the Optibike – to support the rehabilitation of patients awaiting major cancer
surgery. The bike had been proved to improve their fitness, leading to a
shorter post-operative hospital stay, reduce the risk of post-operative
complications and quicker achievement of normal functions after surgery.
As the Trust treats over 120 patients for colon cancer and 30+ patients
requiring a cystectomy for bladder cancer each year, this bid for this bike was
supported by the League.

Total donation value: £4,950
