Walking 5 miles a day for a month for our charity dreamdrops!

Dreamdrops fundraising - Lily, Daisy and Rose (day 15)Walking 5 miles a day for a month for our charity dreamdrops!

Sisters Lily and Daisy Bell are walking 5 miles every day for a month and their little sister Rose, who is only 2, is walking 3-4 miles. They are raising money the Trust’s charity dreamdrops; what a fantastic effort from the whole family!

Mum Sianade said: “The girls are now 15 days into their walk and they have really enjoyed being out in the sunshine and the rain! On Rose’s best day she did 5.5 miles and the girls did 11! But most days Lily and Daisy do 5 miles and Rose does between 3 and 4. So far they have raised £459 and would love to reach £500, I am so proud of them.

“Dreamdrops has helped us so much; they have taken the girls and their brother Shay (who has special needs) on day trips, to Christmas parties and provided us with treats to keep us entertained during the Coronavirus lock down, as well as their ongoing support.

“Daisy had lots of time on Holly Ward at Hinchingbrooke Hospital, from being a new born and now has community support through dreamdrops, so we wanted to help the charity to help more families like us.”

Anne-Marie Hamilton, Chairman of dreamdrops said: “A huge thank you to Lily, Daisy and little Rose, we cannot thank them enough for the amazing effort they have put in to raising money for dreamdrops.  

“The money will be put towards helping sick children who are being cared for at home or in the community, making their lives a little easier during stressful times and what better time to be helping local families.”
