A group of young friends from Thrapston have been so touched by news stories that during the Coronavirus lockdown, zoos are finding it challenging to raise the funds they need to keep the animals fed, entertained and looked after, so they are stepping up to help.
The intrepid eleven from six families, who range in age from very nearly nine to three, are getting on their bikes over 10 days starting from Friday (May 29th) to raise money for their local animal park Hamerton Zoo, near Sawtry.
The 10 boys and one girl, who have all been friends since babies, are planning to clock up 300 miles between them and raise £300.
So as they pump up their tyres and prepare to saddle up this week, please give a little donation to spur them on for their wheelie big challenge.
