Local supporter, Liz Adamson, recently cycled over 100 miles in four days to raise money for children’s cancer.

On 9th June one of our local supporters, Liz, cycled from St Bees all the way to Whitby in just four days whilst raising over £200! She said she had always wanted to complete a Coast To Coast bike ride but chose to donate the money raised to Candlelighters to recognise the fantastic work we do for families facing children’s cancer across Yorkshire.

Safe to say the relentless British weather really put her through her paces as it rained non-stop for two days, presenting a tough challenge. Needless to say, she powered through and completed the ride, a fantastic achievement.


We would just like to say a massive well done and thank you to Liz for taking on and completing the challenge of cycling from Coast To Coast, your donation is really going to help us support our families across Yorkshire.
