The family of a west Cumbrian teenager with cerebral palsy have thanked their local community after they raised £38,000 towards funding for her to have surgery in America.
13-year-old Megan White struggles to walk unaided and dreams of riding a bike like her sisters.
"To get to £38,000 in just 12 months is unbelievable.
"We've had the most incredible support from the community and the local shops. Lots of people have got involved and I will never be able to thank them enough for what they've done.
"There's a last push now to get the final amount but we know that we can do it. There's enough in the pot to get the operation booked so by this time next year I hope I can get Megan that bike.
– Kerrie Iredale, Megan's mother
"There have been cake sales, head shaves, sponsored runs to raise the money but £14,000 came from one group alone.
"Cyclists doing Clive's Cumbrian Way this summer collected the amount from their riders.
"We couldn't believe it when they told us the amount. It is fabulous. It means so much to us all."
Cockermouth School pupil Megan is thrilled by the support.
– Megan White
"It is lovely people have helped me, that they want me to be able to walk properly and to ride a bike.
"Once I've had the operation next year I hope I can do all the things I've not been able to do before.
"It would be great if we could get the last £2000 by Christmas so I know it is definitely going to happen next year.'
A teenager from west Cumbria knows what she wants for next Christmas after her community have raised nearly £40,000 so she can ride a bike for the first time.

Megan's dream is to ride a bike and do all the things her sisters Leah and Kara can do.

Students and teachers at a primary school in West Cumbria have collectively introduced a school ban on bananas.
One of the pupils is allergic to them - so Westfield Primary School in Workington is a banana-free zone.
Samantha Parker reports.
Westfield Primary School pupil Chloe Crouch is allergic to bananas, an allergy that has meant that the school made the decision to ban bringing the food onto campus.
She was born with the condition that also affects her father Lee.
"When Chloe was born we did wonder if she would have the same condition as me. I also have a pretty bad reaction to bananas so we never gave them to here.
"We discovered she did have the allergy when she went to a friends house and accidentally had a banana milkshake.
"She can go into anaphylactic shock and needs urgent medical attention.
"I think the school have been fantastic and so understanding. We didn't ask them to ban to bananas but that's what they decided to do and I support it.
– Lee Crouch
"We know Chloe is safe at school and that is very reassuring for us. Should she come into contact with bananas during school time all safe are trained to stop the symptoms and administer the Epi Pen if needed.
"It is a weight off my mind knowing they know what to do."
Karen Rennie on Facebook:
"Would you ask if it was necessary if it was a nut allergy? Of course it is! Who cares if it's a banana allergy or a nut allergy, the school has to take precautions to make sure the child isn't exposed to them while in their care and the best way to do that is ban them."
