A Peterborough midwife is using pedal power to help beat cancer.
Coralie Huson, a midwife on the delivery suite with a passion for cycling, undertook a stationery 100km in the main atrium of the hospital, raising over £250.
People were so generous and they really spurred me on. I even had colleagues come along and take their turn on the turbo trainer bike for me, to reach the 100km goalCoralie Huson
She said: “I was so pleased with the event.

Coralie is fundraising for Women V Cancer who raises money and the profile of women’s cancer charities including Breast Cancer Care, Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust and Ovarian Cancer Action.
This isn’t the first fundraising event that Coralie has undertaken and she already raised an impressive £2360.
And the latest event provided the perfect training for her next challenge. She said: “My next challenge is a sponsored bike ride in Tanzania later this year, where I will be cycling with 80 other women from 1-10 October.
“It’s going to be very different from the terrain and climate that I’m used to so I am training hard to help me deal with the African heat.”
