Big hearted bikers have raised over £2000 towards a special trike and treatment for an Epworth youngster.

The group of 20 Isle cyclists went 70 miles from Haxey to Skegness in seven hours to help the Leo Palmer appeal, and were met at the end of the ride by Leo’s parents Rick Palmer and Siobhan Edge.

A further £1000 donation has been made to the appeal by local company Green Eco Grants, who also provided support vehicles for the bike ride.

Leo suffers from cerebral palsy and needs a trike with support that costs over £5000, and physiotherapy that is no longer available to him with NHS funding.

His mum Siobhan, of Epworth, said: “It’s a big thank you to everyone who took part and supported the ride.”

A Fun Day with a mass of attractions and a bumper raffle will take place at the Crown Inn, Belton on August 17 from 1pm to 6pm, and on August 21 a psychic event will be staged at Haxey Memorial Hall from 6.30pm. Both occasions will donated proceeds to Leo’s appeal.
