Josh & Jessica Get On Their Bikes for Children in Hospital

Thursday 1 March 2018

Joshua Shannon, 11, and Jessica Shannon, 6, are two of our youngest supporters. Throughout 2018, Josh and Jess have been raising money for the Children's Hospital, Leicester Royal Infirmary, by doing a 9.5 mile bike ride around Leicester. 

With help from their family and friends, the two of them have managed to raise an amazing £100, which will be spent on enhancements for the Leicester Children's Hospital.

Josh said "I rode 9.5 miles because I wanted to raise money for the children's hospital to help the children in hospital and their families. I also did it to spend time with my family". 

Josh and Jess's Mum, Sara, went on to say "at school the children have had a theme of 'Helping Others' and they've had homework relating to that. They both decided to raise money for the children's hospital and Jess had has to do a presentation on it. It was the first time that Jess has ridden a bike with gears and without stabilisers so we were all extremely proud".
