Tickets to take part in the event cost £20 and will go to support NorPIP (Northamptonshire Parent Infant Partnership), a charity that aims to help parents struggling to connect with their babies.

Through the charity, a team of clinical psychologists and parent-infant therapists with expertise in attachment theory and early intervention work with mothers who need help to attach to their newborn babies, a situation which can be linked to postnatal depression.

The NorPIP Bike Ride at Silverstone is one of the charity’s biggest annual events, as well as its Strictly-style dance competitions based in Towcester.
