A FOUR-year-old from Oxford has used pedal power to raised more than £1,500 for the hospitals she can see from her doorstep.

Nellie, who only learnt to ride her bike a few weeks ago, decided if she rode each day from her home to Cherwell School, where her nan works, then she would be able to cycle 100 miles over the course of a month.

Her mum Lianne Devine said: “Over the last couple of weeks, we have all been amazed and inspired by the efforts of Sir Captain Tom Moore and the incredible amount of money raised for the NHS.

"Nellie’s nan had heard about Nellie’s wish to do something for our local hospitals and suggested she do something similar.

"We are all so, so proud of what she has achieved, and we hope it goes some way to say a massive thank you to all the staff."

Joe Baker, from Oxford Hospitals Charity, said: "A great big thank you to Nellie for raising such an amazing amount of money in support of our local hospitals.

"Cycling 100 miles is such a challenge in itself and to be able to do that when you are just four years old is really incredible."

He added: "We are so grateful for all the support that we have received from the local community helping us make a real difference across the wards and departments at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Horton General Hospital, Churchill Hospital, Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre and Oxford Children’s Hospital."
