Twelve-year-old Ellie Meyrick, from Hawkley Hall in Wigan, cycled over 63 miles from Manchester to Blackpool in July in memory of her granddad John Taylor, who died 4 years ago.

Ellie rides for GranddadEllie completed the ride in 5.5 hours and raised a fantastic £640 for Wigan and Leigh Hospice.

Christine Edwardson, community fundraiser at the Hospice, said: "This is a wonderful achievement for a ride which is a huge challenge, even for adults. To complete this length of ride at the age of twelve is truly inspiring. We are very proud of Ellie and so grateful for her generous donation."
