Worthing siblings cycle 100 miles to support NHS

Three Worthing siblings have cycled 100 miles to support the NHS.

Samuel Ludlow, 12, and twins Ben and Emma Ludlow, nine, spent several weeks working on their NHS 100-mile bike challenge.

Samuel said: “We used our 30 minutes of exercise each day to clock up at total of 100 miles and have raised more than £500 for Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust.”

The children wanted to raise money for the NHS as several of their school friends’ mums are nurses and have been working on the front line in the battle with Covid-19.

Samuel Ludlow and twins Ben and Emma Ludlow celebrate completing 100 miles on their Bike Ride for NHS challenge

They came up with the idea of cycling 100 miles to raise £100 and said they would use their daily exercise to build up the total, continuing every day until they had completed the challenge.

They have currently raised £515. To make a donation, visit www.justgiving.com/fundraising/ludlowbike100
