Cardiac staff donned wedding dresses for the Southampton run or dye

There was a massive splash of colour this weekend when hundreds of people took to the streets of Southampton for the Run or Dye event. Included in the throng was the group called Bridezilla’s. 
Amy Dawe comments: “Bridezilla’s formed as we all work for the NHS Cardiovascular and Thoracic team but in different clinical and non clinical roles. 
We are a close circle of friends both inside and outside work, all with a keen interest in running. It consists of myself, Rachel Atkinson (and her daughter Abigail), Katie King, Jackie Davis, Sue Walker and Ali George.

We are raising money for Southampton Hospital Charity, and if you wish to donate following completion of our challenge, go to
