Ex-Hanbury Pupil Bikes for Bowel Charity

15th July 2018
A kind-hearted, ex-Hanbury pupil will be boosting her pedal-power with chocolate and ice cream as she attempts a 20 mile bike ride in aid of Bowel Cancer UK.
 
Abigail Johnson will be cycling from Cadbury World to Churchfields Farm on Tuesday 21st August, after two special people in her life were affected by bowel cancer:
 
"My Grandad has been affected by bowel cancer, which has led to secondary liver cancer. Two of his favourite foods are chocolate and ice cream.  Due to his treatment though, he is not allowed to eat ice cream, so we thought we'd have some for him!"
 
Abigail is now in Year 6, but still has fond memories of her time at Hanbury:
 
"Mrs Kershaw, who inspired me in Year 2 and is also a mother of two children, has also been affected by bowel cancer."
 
Abigail completed a successful short practice cycle to Churchfields this weekend.  If you would like to show your support to her challenge, you can donate via Abigail's Just Giving page... click here for more information and to donate.
 
Children, families and staff at Hanbury First School have been raising money for Bowel Cancer UK all this term, following Mrs Kershaw's diagnosis.  
 
"I am so proud of Abigail - her Grandad will be too," said Mrs Kershaw.  "The money raised by her and the school will really benefit people like us."
