A group of fundraisers are gearing up for their latest challenge to help a young girl battling cancer.

The group, who regularly take part in fundraising events, are cycling 100 miles from Coldstream to North Shields.

They are raising money for three-year-old Hope Louise Feeney, who is undergoing treatment for neuroblastoma.

The cyclists – sponsored by John Luke Van Hire – will set off on Saturday, August 29, and aim to arrive at Chirton Social Club, in Front Street, the following day.

A fundraising day is taking place on August 30, featuring a fancy dress walk from the Waterford Arms at 11am.

Another event will take place at the social club on September 12, featuring the band Ska Toons.

Elsewhere, St Peter’s Church, in Wallsend, is holding an auction to also raise funds for Hope and her family, whose uncle is a member of the congregation.

It will take place in the church’s meeting room on Wednesday, August 26, at 7.30pm.

There will be china and other decorative pieces, gift sets and cuddly toys and many donated meals and beauty treatments from generous Wallsend tradespeople.
