Royal Papworth Hospital celebrated International Nurses Day on Monday 13 May. 

A bring-and-share lunch was laid on for all nurses on shift, with a round of afternoon tea being served on the wards. 

Cakes were also available in the main atrium, with more than £120 raised for Royal Papworth Charity's nursing fund. 

Two awards were presented on the day, with Cheryl Riotto (Nurse of the Year) and Julie Bracken (Support to Nursing) presented with their prizes by Chief Nurse Josie Rudman. 

Nurses Day is celebrated around the world every year to mark Florence Nightingale's birthday on 12 May.
