Gwen Young, a Chiswick resident, is joining approximately 150 women and one man, Professor Lord Winston, Chairman of Genesis Research Trust, to take up the challenge of a life time and cycle through Vietnam and Cambodia.

This five day 400km challenge is the 11 th Women for Women cycle ride which raises much needed funds for Genesis Research Trust. With around 250 babies dying weekly in the UK from complications during pregnancy (1 in 8 babies born prematurely; 1 in 4 women experience miscarriage, 1 in 175 babies are stillborn), this charity lies at the heart of the most profound of all human wishes: to have a happy and healthy family.

Gwen is also organising a Jumble Sale, including homemade cakes and a tombola stall to raise funds for the charity on 29 th October 2011 at St Michael's (Sutton Court) Church Hall, Elmwood Road, Chiswick W4 3DY at 2pm.
