Cleethorpes girl cycles to help Ukrainian families

A schoolgirl from Cleethorpes has cycled more than 12 miles across the Humber Bridge as part of a fundraiser for families affected by the war in Ukraine.

Ava-Rose, 8, from Cleethorpes, said she wanted to do something to help children who have “lost everything”.

The challenge took her four hours to complete.

Dad John Clark said: “We had the news on and Ava saw the pictures and asked where the families were going to go and who was going to help them.

“When we explained that charities were helping she asked how could she raise money for charity and this is how the cycle ride came about.

“At 8 years old, we think she is a true inspiration to all.”

Ava-Rose said: “I’m doing the cycle ride because the children in Ukraine have lost everything and we have everything.”

So far she has raised an incredible £1,030, 206% of her £500 target!
