A FUNDRAISING mother from Kendray has teamed up with her four-year-old daughter to raise funds for a cancer charity by walking 100 miles in a single month.
Keeley Ellis, of Ash Grove, and youngster Chelsea will walk for Bone Cancer Research.
The 26-year-old, who has done numerous fundraisers in the past, is excited to have an extra pair of legs to help out with the challenge.
“Me and Chelsea are always outside going on walks and playing around whilst in lockdown, so I thought it was the perfect time to use this for good,” Keeley said.
“Even though she’s only four, Chelsea walks everywhere with me and we love spending time at Worsbrough Dam.
“Now we’re in lockdown, we wanted to give something back to an important cause while times are tough.
“Bone Cancer Research’s charity is essential, especially at a time like this when many people are missing appointments due to the pandemic.
“These funds will be used to help with important research that will tackle this head-on.”
Keeley and Chelsea have been taking longer walks ahead of their challenge next week.
“Chelsea is gearing up for this now. We’re aiming to do around three-and-a-half miles each day if we’re going to reach our target goal.
“We’ll be tracking our miles as we go and updating it on the fundraiser which is really exciting.
“I would love if people could put their hands in their pockets and support us.
“We’re so thankful for everyone who has donated so far.”
