Playden girl tackles bike ride for MRF

Playden girl tackles bike ride for MRF

16 August 2012

Eliza Wallis from Playden took part in a 27 mile bike ride on Saturday 4th August on behalf of Meningitis Research Foundation and has managed to raise £255.19.

Eliza said: “I wanted to raise as much money as possible for Meningitis Research Foundation because my favourite teacher, Danny Sweatman, lost two brothers, Ryan and Joe, to meningitis. I can't imagine how much this has affected the whole of their family and I thought it was my time to help.”

Chris Head, Chief Executive at MRF, said: “We are extremely grateful to Eliza for having taken on this Bike Ride on our behalf. We rely on voluntary donations to fund our vital work into the prevention, detection and treatment of meningitis and septicaemia, so every pound that she has raised will make a huge difference and enable us to continue our work.”

Anyone who would like further information on taking part in challenge events for MRF in 2013 should contact a member of the Fundraising Team on: 01454 281814.
