ARMY medics proved they don't take their charity role lying down - when they took to the streets to raise funds in memory of a soldier killed in Iraq.

They put their backs into their work when they pushed a bed between two hospitals 25km apart.

Medical and nursing staff from Catterick Garrison pushed the bed from the Friarage Hospital in Northallerton to Catterick Garrison.

The event raised cash for the Ben Hyde Trust, set up in memory of the 23-year-old military policemen from Northallerton, who was killed in Iraq earlier this year.

The bed push culminated in a family fun day at the garrison.
