Caring nine-year old Bailey Marshall overcame his own health issues to help top up the coffers of a cancer charity.

The youngster from Armthorpe made a whopping £640 sum for the Eve Merton Dreams Trust in Doncaster, by completing a sponsored bike ride in Doncaster on August 15.

Shaw Wood Academy pupil Bailey wanted to help raise cash for cancer sufferers after seeing his grandad, Mick Prince of Conisbrough, battle the disease.

Mr Prince had hoped to cheer Bailey on at Lakeside, but was rushed to hospital that same day and had to be informed later of how well his grandson had done.

Bailey’s mum, Shiree Kerry, said: “The fact his grandad was poorly made Bailey even more determined. His nanan managed to support him between hospital trips.”

Due to Bailey’s asthma and his young age, he was joined by his stepfather Jason Kerry, who carried his inhaler and water.

Bailey said: “I wanted to do the bike ride for my grandad and raise money for the Eve Merton Dreams Trust because my mum works with them. It was hard, but worth it to see my family’s faces at the finish line.”
