A dad will be cycling from Morecambe to Bridlington to raise money for the neo-natal unit which saved his son’s life.

Theo Berry was born by emergency C-section in July 2013 and immediately his life was in danger due to an inadequate intake of oxygen during the birth process.

Gareth Berry said: “Due to the quick actions of the doctors and nurses at the neo-natal unit in the Royal Lancaster Infirmary, Theo’s progress was nothing short of a miracle. My wife Hannah and I will never forget and be forever grateful for them saving our boy.

“With my new found love of cycling thanks to the Tour of Britain visiting our area in 2012, I decided I wanted to give something back to the people who saved my sons life and that of so many babies every day.

“I approached my friends and we decided to take on the way of the roses cycle route, 170 miles from Morecambe to Bridlington to raise money for Lancaster neo-natal unit.

“Eight riders from Lancaster and Morecambe will set of at 9.15am on Saturday, March 15 , from The Midland hotel.”
