Teenager raises hundreds after cycling 35 miles for the Hudson Day Treatment Centre in Wisbech

A young boy has raised hundreds for a treatment centre close to his family's heart.

Sam Davallou, 14, who attends the Thomas Clarkson Academy in Wisbech, set himself a challenge of cycling 35 miles over five days to raise vital funds for the Alan Hudson Day Treatment Centre in the town.

He completed his 35 miles last Wednesday and has raised about £500 for the centre which he will present next Wednesday after he finishes school.

The reason Sam wanted to take on this challenge because recently, his granny was diagnosed with cancer and the Alan Hudson Day Treatment Centre in Wisbech has been giving her weekly care.

Sam said: “This was devastating news to me and the rest of my family.”

As a result, Sam decided to set up a GoFundMe page to help raise money for the organisation which is currently helping the family and many others in Wisbech and the surrounding areas.

He wanted to cycle 35 miles as “this represents one mile for every 35 people that this organisation helps each year”, he said.

Sam said: “ I am very grateful for any donations that you are able to make.”

His granny said the service the team offers has been extremely useful for her and is very much needed.
