RCM's Pashley bikes, vintage uniforms, sponge cake and their e-petition
Pashley bikes, vintage uniforms, sponge cake and our e-petition - make way for the Call the Midwife bike ride!
Yesterday, 18 first-year student midwives from King's College dressed in 1950s garb as a nod to the BBC television series and biked six miles through London to promote our petition for more midwives. Along the way, organiser Rebecca and her fellow student midwife Julia pulled over to tell us why the petition means so much to them.
Please will you help Rebecca and Julia collect more signatures? Watch and share this video from the ride now by clicking here.
These dedicated midwifery students saw that our petition needs help to reach 100,000 signatures - and they took matters in to their own hands. Armed with e-petition postcards and some tasty cakes for supporters, the fancy dress group made stops all along their route to raise awareness and collect signatures. They even met with MPs and encouraged them to stand up for maternity services.
You can do your part too. Watch this video from the ride and share it with your friends to remind them how important this petition is:
Thank you for helping our petition move closer to the House of Commons!
