A project that provides public health advice and basic health care to people in rural Bangladesh is now £800 better off thanks to some pedal power.
LAMB Health Care Foundation, which supports LAMB, a 150-bed hospital specialising in obstetrics and gynaecology, received the money after Helen Eyers
and Ruth Hobbs cycled
100km across London
in early June.
The pair started just before midnight and took in all the London sights before finishing shortly after 8.45am the following morning.
They were taking part in the Nightrider event, a unique 100km moonlit ride past London’s iconic landmarks.
Other participants included Princess Eugenie, Ben Fogle, Ortis Deley and Jim Carter.
Ruth, along with her husband Jason, spent six months volunteering for LAMB and the pair worship at Wycliffe Baptist Church in Reading.
It’s not too late to donate to the fund. For more details, log on to http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/RuthHobbs.
