Colleagues of Emma’s father decided to get together and raise money for the staff on the maternity ward at Royal Preston Hospital as a tribute to her and her daughter.
They completed 500 miles of cycling around the Guild Wheel, however people who live further away completed their miles locally.
Everyone taking part on May 30 made it round in one piece and they went over their fundraising target and raised £1,175 for the charity.
Donations can still be made here by anyone who missed the event at the time.
