Wanstead resident Dr Mark Hayden will be part of a team of 30 paediatric healthcare providers cycling from London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital to the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow this month.

The 500-mile journey will be drawing attention to climate change.

“Those who protect our children’s health now are riding to offer hope for our children’s future,” said Dr Hayden, who has organised the Ride for Their Lives event.

The cyclists will arrive in Glasgow as the COP26 summit starts.
