Skye's 100-mile fund-raiser

Year 9 student Skye Willis is about to cycle 100 miles in aid of a good cause - but she won't be breaking any Lockdown rules.

The 13-year-old Weald of Kent Grammar School girl set off on her virtual fund-raiser tomorrow (Tuesday 21 April) at 9am. She plans to cycle an impressive 100 miles via the Zwift app which lets keen cyclists cover huge distances in their own living room.

Skye's doing the ride in aid of the Maudsley Charity. It works in partnership with South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust and the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King’s College London to promote positive change in the world of mental health.

Skye said: "Do you want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money in aid of Maudsley Charity and every donation will help. Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me."

Good luck Skye.
