Alan Philp Cycling Challenge for SANDS Lothians

Lynsey Philip did her elective midwifery placement with SANDS Lothians last year and the family were so inspired that her husband Alan and her sister are taking it on themselves to do a fundraiser event for us this year. Please help support Alan by sponsoring him, sharing his page or maybe being inspired and setting up an event yourself. Great way to challenge yourself into the new year. Hope the training is going well guys!
