On Sunday 7th September, 15 friends cycled from Haddenham (Cambs) back home to our Haddenham (Bucks) to raise money for children's cancer charity The Neuroblastoma Society.
The was in memory of Lily Gray, the daughter of Michael and Caroline Gray, who lost her battle against the aggresive type of cancer in September 2013, aged just 2 years and 3 months. The family and all those who took part in the challenge live in the village.
Participants cycled nearly 80 miles on Sunday, to raise as much money as possible to help find a cure for this disease. They were welcomed back to the village by a large crowd of friends and parents, most with children at Haddenham Community Infant School.
At the time of writing, the total raised had reached over £5,600!
