Three Lutton youngsters with strong connections to the Free Press are using pedal power to help boost the coffers of the Two Lips Appeal.
Editor Jeremy Ransome’s children Alfie (10) and Tilly Ransome (8) and his step-daughter Joanna Mota (7) are taking part in a sponsored cycle ride on Sunday, May 12.
Alfie, who attends Tydd St Mary Primary School, is tackling a ten-mile course, starting and finishing in the village.
And Tilly, who also attends Tydd school, and Joanna, who goes to Lutton Primary School, are taking on a five-mile route around the village.
The youngsters are practicing with their dad every Tuesday and Sunday and are hoping to raise over £100.
“Daddy said last year it would be nice for us to do something for Two Lips in 2013,” said Alfie.
“We all have newish bikes and love cycling, so I thought this would be a good way of helping. The furthest I have biked is 6.3 miles and the longest the girls have done is 4.4 but we are determined to do it.”
If you would like to sponsor the youngsters, you can do so my popping into our offices in the Crescent, Spalding and asking to speak to the editor.
