Danielle Briscoe from Southport is cycling 400 miles in June to raise money for Queenscourt Hospice

A determined Southport schoolgirl is preparing to cycle an incredible 400 miles during June to raise desperately-needed funds for Queenscourt Hospice. 

Danielle Briscoe revealed that she is taking on her epic challenge because the hospice, which is located in Kew in Southport, has looked after family members of her friends. 

The distance Danielle aims to travel over the next few weeks is equivalent to cycling from Southport to London and back; going to Liverpool and back 10 times; or Southport to Paris. 

She will celebrate her 11th birthday midway through her epic challenge but is determined to do what she can to help others in our town.

The 10-year-old, who attends St Patrick’s Primary School in Churchtown, in Southport, said: “I have decided to use this time in lockdown to raise money for Queenscourt Hospice in particular because it has helped my friends’ family members and this hospice helps everyone in need.

“During the Covid-19 pandemic they are losing lots of money from public fundraising events which have been cancelled and their charity shops which are closed.

“Please help by sponsoring me during my challenge, any amount will be greatly appreciated.”

Her proud Dad Lee Briscoe is backing his daughter all the way. 

He said: “After school closed and lockdown started Danielle started doing four-mile bike rides with her five-year-old brother, Liam, for their daily exercise.

“We gradually increased the daily mileage until they were doing 80 to 100 miles a week. “Danielle thought it could be a great idea to try to raise some money for charity.
