We are a team of doctors working in Obstetrics & Gynaecology in the North West of England. To combat lockdown blues and to ease work and pandemic-related stress we decided to set ourselves the challenge of walking, running or cycling the distance from Land's end to John o' Groats over a month (1400km). We thought we'd raise some money whilst we were at it. Each of us have personally pledged to donate 1p for each km we travel in total as a group... which is currently looking set to be well over our 1400km target! Why not join us and donate a similar amount?
Our chosen charity is Cradle, an organisation working to support individuals, couples and families affected by early pregnancy loss.
Cradle aims to "help those going through the pain of miscarriage. To say, this is not okay, you are not alone, I am here for you. To educate others on how to help speak to those grieving and to offer ongoing support through local groups or one on one counselling."
Many bereaved parents find themselves being admitted to hospital during an emergency, unexpectedly rushed in without any home comforts or basic essentials and one of Cradle's projects aims to change that by providing emergency comfort bags, alongside offering information about our monthly support groups and other local support finding services.
