Two sisters have put their one hour of exercise per day to excellent use to raise much needed funds for causes they have personally chosen.
Abby, year 11, has challenged herself to cycle a minimum of 5 miles every day during lock down to raise money for The Trussell Trust. She knows that she is fortunate enough not to need to rely on a food bank but knows that others will need them more than ever in these challenging times. The Trussell Trust has reported a fall in donations and supplies at this time, and Abby wanted to do her bit to help out. Her challenge began on 6th April and so far she has cycled 429 miles and raised over £300.
Younger sister Erin, year 8, has challenged herself to complete 100 miles during lock down either by cycling or by walking her dog, Bella! She wants to help raise money for her riding school, Croft End Equestrian Centre, which has had to close its doors to the public which means there is no income coming in to help look after the horses. The horses still need to be fed and shod and she wanted to do her bit to ensure they were taken care of. Her challenge also began on 6th April and so far she has completed 84 miles and raised £275.
This is a brilliant achievement by both girls.
