More than £2,000 has been raised for Ys­byty Gwynedd’s Emer­gency Depart­ment and In­ten­sive Care Unit fol­low­ing a 70-mile cy­cle ride.

The group of rid­ers from An­gle­sey took part in the fundraiser to mark the NHS turn­ing 70 this year. They also took the op­por­tu­nity to thank staff from the Emer­gency Depart­ment and the In­ten­sive Care Unit for the care they pro­vided.

Ricky Jones, 27, was left in a crit­i­cal con­di­tion after a car crash near Bryn­g­wran in 2015 and was rushed into Ys­byty Gwynedd’s Emer­gency Depart­ment be­fore be­ing taken by am­bu­lance to Stoke Hos­pi­tal. Kirsty Owen, also 27, was clipped by a train after she had gone onto the track to get her bag at Llan­fair­p­wll Sta­tion on An­gle­sey in 2013.

She suf­fered se­ri­ous back in­juries and has since un­der­gone 13 op­er­a­tions with fur­ther surgery planned for the fu­ture. Kirsty, who has a two-year-old son, vis­ited the Emer­gency Depart­ment with Ricky to present the cheque of £2,656.33 to staff.

Ricky Jones, from Gwalch­mai, and Kirsty Owen, from Llangefni, meet with staff of Ys­byty Gwynedd’s Emer­gency Depart­ment to hand over a cheque for more than £2,000 raised through a char­ity bike ride.
