Ward 37 staff at The James Cook University Hospital are putting their pedal power to the test in an all-day fundraiser today.
Trust and military staff from the trauma team at the Middlesbrough hospital will take it in turns to pedal exercise bikes in the atrium at James Cook until they have clocked up the equivalent of cycling from Edinburgh to London – 406 miles in total!
The team will be pedalling from the early hours of the morning until they hit their target and they are hoping to raise more than £500 throughout the day to help purchase a bladder scanner for the ward.
Trauma clinical matron Keir Rumins said: “More than 10 staff members will be taking part to help us raise funds towards this extra piece of equipment for the ward.
Ward manager Sarah Nellis added: “We are urging everyone who is walking through the atrium to show their support.”
