Liam’s Sponsored Bike Ride

We want to say a big thank you to 9 year old Liam Smith, who completed a sponsored 25 mile bike ride along Chesterfield Canal is support of his mum Amanda. He smashed his original target of £200 and raised an amazing £1300 for us! “It was a struggle towards the end,”says Amanda, who did the bike ride with Liam. “My bones were already hurting before I started, from the treatment. All our legs and bums hurt and we were freezing, but he didn’t give up, bless him. He keeps telling me it was all worth it.”
