A family from Royston have joined with friends to complete a bike ride in memory of a wife and mum who died from sepsis.
Team Paula – riding in honour of Paula Noble who died suddenly from the condition in May 2017 – finished the The Tour of Cambridgeshire Gran Fondo Sportive Bike Race last Sunday.
The team, which included Paula’s husband Gary and son Steven, have raised almost £13,000 for the Sepsis Trust.
“I would like to thank everyone in the team for their fantastic effort and support throughout,” said Gary.
“I would also like to thank everyone who has already donated to the charity. I have been overwhelmed by your generosity.”
Formerly known as blood poisoning, sepsis is a potentially fatal condition that can be triggered by a cut, insect bite or infection.
More than six million people die from the condition worldwide each year, causing more deaths than bowel, breast and prostate cancer combined.
The Sepsis Trust works to raise awareness through research, innovation and good practice.
