PEDAL power helped a Pocklington woman raise hundreds of pounds for a children’s charity.

Laura McMillan, of Wold Garth, cycled from Woldgate College, in Pocklington, to North Dalton and back, which is approximately 17 miles.

She did the bike ride with two friends and together they raised £466 for the Sunny Days Children’s Fund, which helps terminally ill children.

Laura, who works at Johnson Cleaners, in Market Place, Pocklington, decided to do the fundraiser after Sunny Days asked staff at the dry cleaners to raise £40 for each terminally ill child they help.

The staff recently held a fundraising day with a cake stall and tombola, which raised £52.38 for the charity.

Speaking about the bike ride, Laura said: “It went really well. It was easier on the way back. On the way it was up hill and there was rain and wind.

“I’m pleased with how much we raised.”
