Muddy midwives come out on top

 Midwives who got muddy to raise money for the maternity unit at Grimsby hospital are gleaming with pride after their running success.

A group of 15 midwives from Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital entered either a 5k or 10k race to raise funds for the hospital charity, the Health Tree Foundation, to be spent on the maternity unit.

Gemma Logan-McRae, the midwife who organised the event said: “We set out to raise £250 so we’re delighted to have doubled that as we’ve received £550 so far in donations.

“It was one of the best experiences of my life and I’m so happy it was such a success.”

The staff, who work on the blueberry, jasmine, holly and honeysuckle wards, all took on the Filthy Girl Mud Run at Derbyshire’s Catton Hall in a joint effort to raise the money.

Victoria Winterton, partnerships manager for The Health Tree Foundation, said: “It’s great to see how well the ladies have done and everyone is so pleased for them. The donation will go towards benefiting patients on the maternity ward.”
