Amy raises over £500 with Norwegian cycling climb

A nine year old girl from East Markham, Newark, has successfully completed a 20 mile uphill cycling challenge in Norway, raising  £528 for Children’s Liver Disease Foundation (CLDF).


Amy Kirkby cycled 20 miles from Flam, which is at sea level, to Myrdal which is 2844 feet above, during her family holiday in Norway last month. She was inspired to take on the challenge after  finding out how the charity supports her friend’s six year old sister, Ellie, who was born with the rare liver disease PFIC 1.


“Amy was an absolute star,” says proud mum, Jennie. “It was very challenging and she tackled it with such strength and determination. She’s delighted not only to have completed it but to have exceeded her £500 target for a cause which is close to her heart.”

Michelle Wilkins, Head of Services for Children’s Liver Disease Foundation added: “CLDF is the only UK charity dedicated to fighting all childhood liver diseases, by providing information and emotional support, funds for research and a voice for all those affected. In order to do this, however, we rely on voluntary donations, so what Amy has done for us is just amazing. She absolutely is a star and should be so proud of what she has achieved for Ellie and many other children like her.”
