Pedal power for Peter­bor­ough mid­wives

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

Peter­bor­ough mid­wives are pre­par­ing for a gru­elling cy­cle ride to raise money for char­ity. Nikki But­ler, clin­i­cal mid­wifery team leader at Peter­bor­ough City Hospi­tal’s ma­ter­nity depart­ment, is gear­ing up to take part in the 300-mile bike ride from Lon­don to Paris to raise money for UK char­ity, The Sick Chil­dren’s Trust. Nikki will start the 4-day jour­ney from south Lon­don be­fore mak­ing her way across the chan­nel to cy­cle through the French coun­try­side be­fore fin­ish­ing at the Eif­fel Tower in Paris. She will be joined by mid­wives Kerri Melero and Jo Ma­hon who are tak­ing part in the chal­lenge for a dif­fer­ent char­ity. Nikki said: “Four years ago, my son was born pre­ma­turely and was cared for at The Rosie Hospi­tal in Cam­bridge. The Sick Chil­dren’s Trust not only sup­ported me dur­ing a dif­fi­cult time, but also pro­vided ac­com­mo­da­tion at Chest­nut House. I can’t praise the char­ity enough for their help and I am happy to say that my son is now a healthy four year old.”
