A BELPER grandmother will cycle from London to Paris to raise funds for a premature babies’ charity.

Rosie Spears,of Long Row, in the town, who is a teaching assistant at Belper School, is putting her mettle to the pedal to raise money for the charity Bliss, which supports babies born prematurely.

It comes after Rosie’s grandson Harry died four years ago when he was born 13 weeks early. Since then her daughter Rebecca and son-in-law Paul have raised £30,000 for the charity and the neonatal unit at Royal Derby Hospital, by trekking up Kilimanjaro and taking part in the London Marathon.
