A DEREHAM midwife is embarking on Far Eastern cycling adventure to help support a charity appeal by TV's Professor Robert Winston.

Eve Brady, who works at Dereham hospital, is joining a 450km cycle ride across some of China's remotest regions to raise funds for the Women for Women Cycle China charity.

The five-day bike ride will start on September 23, 2010, when Eve will join an 80-strong female team to navigate through the rivers, gorges, and ancient landmarks of China's Beijing region.

Her target is to collect a minimum of £3,300 to fund medical research at the Wolfston and Weston Research Centre for Family Health in London.

Mrs Brady said: “We are all aware that our challenge will be a tough one requiring a great deal of commitment and training.

“However we are a committed group of midwives willing to donate our time, energy and annual leave to improve the health of women and babies worldwide.”

Women for Women gathers funds for female scientists and clinicians to specialise in research affecting women and their babies.

The studies aim to combat conditions such as miscarriage, genetic disease, infertility, cancer and brain damage by producing new methods for diagnosis and treatment.

Over 1,400 women have followed Lord Winston's campaign and completed cycle trips across India, Cuba, and Egypt - together they have collected over £2m for the Institute of Obstetrics and Gynaecology Trust's Women for Women fund.
