Fundraising for Zoe's Place Baby Hospice.

Gemma Hewiton, who is store manager of Boots in the town’s Middleton Grange shopping centre, saddled up in aid of local babies’ hospice Zoe Place and joined colleagues in cycling more than 100 miles. While she hit the road, staff in her shop hit the exercise bikes to rack up even more miles. Here we take a closer look at how the fundraising unfolded.
