Response to sponsored cycle ride 'overwhelming'

The mother of a girl who had a rare bone cancer removed from her arm at a Birmingham hospital plans to do more fundraising in future, having been overwhelmed by the support for her 220-mile sponsored bike ride.

The response to the cycle ride has been overwhelming. We never dreamed it would grow so big, but it just shows how our fantastic communities work in this area.

We have had people coming to our doorstep to drop off donations anonymously, which is amazing.

– Lynne Evans, mother of Bethan Evans
