We’d like to say a ginormous thank you to 12-year-old Theo for his Coast to Coast cycle challenge!
 
Fabulous Theo decided to take on the challenge of cycling a whopping 140 miles coast to coast, from Whitehaven to Tynemouth, raising over £2,000 for Candlelighters in the process. Theo was inspired to fundraise because of the support we were able to give his younger sister, Rose, throughout her cancer experience. Mum Emily, dad Tom, and uncle James joined Theo on his fantastic fundraising journey (which ended closer to 160 miles with some detours along the way!), with Rose choosing to stay at home and enjoy some quality time with Granny and Grandpa instead!
