Hundreds turn out for Darcy Hundreds turn out for Darcy


FRIENDS of a little girl diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour turned out on Sunday for a special fundraising motorbike ride.

Around 200 motorbikes took part in the special ride to raise money for five-year-old Darcy Burke.

They rode from Sherburn-in-Elmet to Wombwell to raise money for 'Darcy's Days', a charity for Darcy to have new experiences this summer.

She was diagnosed with pontine glioma, a rare brain stem tumour, in April after experiencing headaches for several months.

In May she began radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatments to extend her life expectancy from nine to 15 months.

In the meantime her parents Joanne Willis and Dave Burke have dedicated themselves to raising as much money as possible to give Darcy a wonderful summer.
