A DETERMINED nine-year-old girl has completed a 20 mile bike ride for Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in memory of her little sister.

Jessica Weaver from Little Neston raised more than £1,200 beating her original target of £500 and will be going to Alder Hey on Monday to present them with a cheque.

Her challenge on May 28 took place on the anniversary of the death of her younger sister Georgie who was born with a rare condition called tracheal agensis which means she was born without a windpipe.

Two years ago Jessica was made a young ambassador for Alder Hey Children’s charity due to all the fundraising she has completed in her sister’s memory.

Emma, Jessica’s mum told the Globe: “Jess' ride on Sunday was a huge success.

“She was joined by family and friends and they completed the 20 miles in just under 3 hours which was amazing.

“£383.35 was collected on the day including proceeds from the raffle.

“A further £884.48 has been donated via just giving bringing the total for this year's ride to £1267.93.

“Jess will be going to Alder Hey on Monday to present them with the cheque.”

Jess lead her third ride from Nets cafe in Little Neston towards Chester (Northgate ponds) and back.

Emma added: “She wants to go further than she has before so that people continue to support her, that’s where the idea of completing 20 miles came from.

“A few members of the family and friends joined her.

“Two years ago Jess rode 16 miles along the Wirral Way from Hadlow station to Thurstaston and back last year and 11 miles the year before.

“We are all so proud of Jess and all she continues to do for Alder Hey in memory of Georgie who passed away three years ago.”
