With events such as the London Marathon cancelled, this local family thought Willen might need a little extra help with fundraising.

Oliver is five and his sister, Isla is four, and they have just completed a challenge of cycling 40 miles over the last seven days to raise money for Willen Hospice.

Mum, Samantha says "Willen took care of my grandad 20 years ago, my uncle 19 years ago and my husband's gran about 10 years ago, but we will NEVER forget the work and love and support we all received and will always fundraise for the hospice. The children enjoyed doing a run last year so we discussed options with them and they liked the idea of a bike ride challenge."

Having set a target of £100, Isla and Oliver have already raised a whopping £550 for the Hospice. This has not been easy for them. En route during the week, they have made the time to stop and do some schoolwork. And with the weather having turned on their last day, they completed their ride in the rain, hail, thunder, lightning and wind!
