SPALDING midwife Sharon Tolley likes to go that extra mile for her patients...13 to be precise.

Sharon, who works at Boston’s Pilgrim Hospital has handed over more than £1,300 in sponsorship to the maternity unit after completing the Great Eastern Run in Peterborough last year.

The money, which was collected in sponsorship from colleagues, family and friends, will be used in the delivery suite and maternity ward.

Sharon said: “It has not yet been decided what the money will be used for but we have lots of ideas, from machines designed to help alleviate some of the pain in labour to music systems to help women to relax.

“It is my pleasure to hand over the proceeds and facilitate improved comfort for women in our care in this way.”

The event was the first time Sharon had run for a cause.
