Staff and residents at a Melton hospital which cares for people with brain injuries have helped raise money for charity by pedal power.

Louise Smith, hospital director at the Partnerships in Care Burton Park site, cycled 65 miles on a static bike.

Her colleagues and some of the patients also pedalled miles on the cycle to generate funds.

Later in the day staff from Burton Park’s sister hospital in Northampton cycled 65 miles to the Melton site.

They were greeted by residents and staff with refreshments and balloons to mark the finishing line.

Hayley Parker, a senior rehab assistant at Burton Park, said: “Everyone did their bit and the residents joined in as well.

“We plan to give the money to various different charities when it is all in”
