A motorcyclist is preparing to ride 1,000 miles in 24 hours to raise funds for the critical care unit at Colchester General Hospital.

Andy McGowan will begin his journey from outside the hospital’s Main Entrance at 10am on Saturday (23rd June).

He hopes to raise £1000 and was inspired to take on the challenge after his wife, Sarah, received treatment at the hospital.
