It's time to dust off your school uniform and help a Melbourn woman raise funds so she can take part in a charity cycle ride.

Stephanie Clifford is holding a Back to Skool Disco at Meldreth Village Hall on Saturday to raise money for Women for Women, a charity set up by the Obstetrics and Gynaecology Trust to help improve the health of new mothers and babies.

She plans to join the charity's 250-mile Women for Women Cycle India ride, and must donate a minimum of £2,800 to take part.

Stephanie has already raised nearly £2,000 by holding events such as belly dancing lessons, cake sales, and baby sitting. The cut off date for entries to the race is September 13.

"I hope that people and businesses will help me reach my target," she said.

"All money raised will help fund ground breaking medical research work at a major new research centre in London.

"The cycle ride will take place over five days at the end of November. We will be cycling through the Rajastan region."

The entertainment at the Back to Skool disco will be provided by Edwin Rule from Goldmine Discos.

Tickets cost £7.50, available from Stephanie on 01763 220272.
