Event description: The Charity Fun Day will start at 8 am when hundreds of people will cycle, run or walk to the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital (RSH) as part of the annual hospital-to-hospital fundraiser – this year known as the Butterfly Effect. This will be followed by a Summer Fete at The Shropshire Conference Centre at RSH from 12 noon until 4.30 pm.
The day will start with The Butterfly Effect – sponsored by Radfield Home Care – at 8am when the first cyclists will leave RSH on a 50-mile circular bike ride. They will be followed by cyclists taking part in a 35-mile bike ride from the Princess Royal Hospital (PRH) in Telford to RSH and an 18 mile bike run from PRH to RSH.

Runners and walkers are able to enter distances of 18 miles (PRH to RSH), nine miles (starting in Upton Magna) and a circular 5K walk starting from RSH. For more information about the routes visit
