Six year-old Jack Bayley hopped on his bike to raise money for The Myton Hospices.

The youngster had sworn off riding his bike after taking a nasty tumble into some stinging nettles a few years ago, but with some encouragement from his Granny he decided to face his fears and take on a three mile cycle at the Dorridge Fun Run on Sunday 4th June.

Jack raised...

Joined by his mum Jenny, step-dad Trevor and younger brother Max, Jack completed the ride safe from any stinging nettles and raised £140 for Myton in the process. Jack’s Grampy Ray was cared for at Warwick Myton Hospice around five years ago which is why he chose to donate the money to Myton.

Jack, who goes to Coten End School in Warwick, said:

I was riding my bike down a hill in St Nick’s Park and I fell off into stinging nettles. I started riding my bike again last year and rode three miles without stabilisers. I wanted to help the poorly people at Myton which is why I did the ride.

We are so pleased Jack overcame his fear of falling off his bike and managed to raise so much money for Myton!
