A midwife has raised more than £600 for charity by completing the Paris marathon.

Georgina Lennon, a midwife at Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust raised more than £600 for the MAMA Academy, a stillbirth prevention charity by completing the Paris Marathon last Sunday, April 14.

The midwife, from Laindon in Essex, said: "I have one of the most rewarding yet challenging jobs and alongside many happy times, we also experience sad times.

"The MAMA Academy is a fantastic charity which works alongside the Royal College of Midwives and NHS England to help babies arrive safely.

"I’m chuffed to have raised so much money for them taking part in this marathon in the beautiful city of Paris."

The 25-year-old completed the marathon in five and half hours.

It was the third marathon she had run for charity, having completed the London Marathon in 2012 for the charity Phab Kids and the Brighton Marathon in 2017 for Little Buds.
