A seven-year-old Culcheth girl is taking on a 20 mile cycle challenge on Saturday and has already raised nearly £1,000 to support NHS workers.
Freya Booth, supported by family, friends and neighbours has already nearly raised £1,000 before even starting her challenge!
Mum Helen Booth said: “Freya and I were sat chatting about COVID-19 and the changes it’s made to her life and we spoke about the NHS and about the Virgin £5 for 5k exercise challenge she completed last month.
“As a family we’ve sadly been affected by the virus and Freya wanted to find a way of donating her own savings whilst raising more money for those caring for COVID-19 patients.
“She’s always had a passion for cycling and has been clocking up her miles, most days, since lockdown. She wants to take on the challenge for the NHS, riding 20 miles (32k) within a few hours.”
Freya had originally intended to try and raise £100 but is already nearing £1,000.
Freya will do her ride this Saturday, May 16. Neighbours are supporting her by putting banners and posters up in their windows and will be clapping her home.
