Fire staff in charity cycle

Have your say

A GROUP of fundraising firefighters from South Yorkshire have cycled 150 miles along Hadrian’s Wall to raise cash for charity.

The six, from South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue’s technical fire safety team, cycled for three days from Whitehaven in West Cumbria to Tynemouth on the North East coast.

They embarked on their mission to raise cash to help send four-year-old Barnsley girl, Ebonie Webb, to America for potentially life-saving cancer treatment not available in the UK.

Ebonie has a brain tumour for which the best course of treatment is not available on the NHS.

Her family needs to raise £75,000 for the treatment – a form of radiotherapy that is less damaging and carries a smaller risk of future health problems.
