A KINDHEARTED Clevedon girl has raised money for Cancer Research UK after learning her great aunt is unwell.
Amber Sparey, aged nine, took on a sponsored cycle ride along the Strawberry Line from Yatton to Cheddar which took three hours to complete.
The St John’s Primary School pupil organised the challenge herself, with a little help from her aunty Amy, after learning her great aunt had been diagnosed with terminal cancer.
Amber’s grandmother, Barbara Britton, who she lives with in Ruddymead said: “After I told her my sister wasn’t well, she organised this all herself.
“She even rang the charity up at one point to ask for more sponsorship forms.

“I was really chuffed with her and it meant a lot.”
Amber, who also collected donations in a tin during the ride, is still collecting in sponsorship money from her friends and family.
