Join the Bristol to Paris Cycle Challenge and help save lives.

Every year Bristol city centre hospitals care for over 900,000 people from across Bristol and the South West. Our amazing NHS staff are there for us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Now it’s our turn to give something back.

As the official charity for Bristol city centre hospitals, Above & Beyond raises vital funds to provide the very best care possible across the University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust. Our hospitals include:

  • Bristol Royal Infirmary (BRI)
  • Bristol Royal Hospital for Children
  • St Michael’s Hospital
  • Bristol Haematology and Oncology Centre (BHOC)
  • Bristol Heart Institute (BHI)
  • Bristol Eye Hospital
  • Bristol Dental Hospital
  • Central Health Clinic
  • South Bristol Community Hospital

A lifetime of care 

Over 5,000 babies are born at St Michaels Hospital every year. Some will need the care of the Children’s Hospital, others will visit A&E at the BRI, or be cared for by the Bristol Heart Institute or Bristol Haematology and Oncology Centre. We will all need our hospitals at some point in our lives - either for ourselves or a loved one.

Above & Beyond’s amazing supporters have helped to fund state-of-the-art equipment, innovative research, welcoming hospital environments and staff training and development. The charity’s iconic Bristol to Paris Cycle Challenge has been a huge part of making this possible.

This year marks the 5th anniversary of the ride. To date over 280 intrepid cyclists have donned lycra and pedalled their way to raising over £620,000 for our hospitals. Thanks to these inspirational fundraisers, Above & Beyond have been able to fund a range of life-changing projects including private rooms for cystic fibrosis patients, a cardiac scanner and refurbishment of the neuro-rehabilitation ward at the Children’s Hospital, as well as an ultrasound scanner for the Fetal Medicine Unit at St Michael’s Hospital.

We need you!
