Manea boy Bill, aged five, gearing up for cycling fundraiser
PUBLISHED: 10:21 19 July 2018
A five-year-old boy from Manea is to cycle three-and-a-half miles to raise money for a girl who needs a life-saving operation.
Bill Grant, five, who goes to Manea Primary School Bill’s, came up with the idea for his ‘Little Sponsored Bike Ride’ to raise money for Eden Eyre, who has been diagnosed a rare form of cancer.
£200,000 is needed so Eden can have a vaccine treatment in America and so far £175,000 has been raised thanks to The Eden Eyre Fairy Project page on Facebook.
Bill’s mum, Keri Bishop, said: “Our Bill wants to do his bit and help raise some money for her so any donation you can make would be very much appreciated.
“He’s such an outdoors boy and I’ve just bought him a new push bike to do the ride.
“Bill keeps asking every day when the cycle is. He’s just happy to be doing it; he’s a very grown up five-year-old.
“Bill is like a young man already, really.”
