A GROUP of cycling medics used pedal power to raise cash for charity at the weekend, by riding from hospital to hospital.

The group, made up of doctors, nurses and staff from StowHealth, in Stowmarket, set off on a 35-mile journey on Sunday, from West Suffolk Hospital, in Bury, to Ipswich Hospital.

The health staff hung up their stethoscopes and white coats in exchange for crash helmets and Lycra to complete the charity bike ride and raise more than £1,000 for Lynne’s Bowel Cancer Campaign.

The charity was established by TV presenter Lynne Faulds-Wood to increase awareness of bowel cancer.

Dr Simon Rudland took part in the event and hopes it will raise awareness of bowel cancer among people in Suffolk: “More than 40,000 people are diagnosed with bowel cancer every year.”
