A PUPIL at St Mary,s Primary School, Kirkby Lonsdale, has completed a cycling challenge which helped a group of charity bike riders to raise £9,000 for children’s heart charities.

Elsie-May Dancy, of Barbon, cycled for nine miles as part of the Hearty Bikers fundraising bid, inspired by her young cousin who suffers from a congenital heart condition which required open heart surgery at Alder Hey Hospital, Liverpool.
