George Eliot Hospital Midwife, Tania Kotsiopoulou has started cycling in a bid to get fit, know the local area better and support a great cause for children and young people.
Tania moved to Nuneaton from Greece earlier this year and wanted to get out and about around her new home. Her colleague, Victoria Jones put her in touch with a Warwickshire based charity called Cyclists Fighting Cancer who sold her a bike that had been refurbished by the charity. The funds raised from the bike sale will be used to support children and young people living with cancer across the UK.
Riding bicycles can help these young people regain their physical fitness, strength and confidence and Cyclists Fighting Cancer help by giving them new bikes, adapted trikes, tandems, other equipment and support. They also sell refurbished bikes to help raise funds for the charity.
Tania said: “I had wanted to buy a bicycle because I had one at home in Greece. I heard about the charity from one of my colleagues at the George Eliot.
“I am now enjoying getting around in my spare time and happy knowing that the purchase will also go to help others enjoy cycling. I have even added a basket to my lovely bike”
