Knowle teenagers gearing up for Molly Olly's Wishes challenge

Sarah Mason 23rd May, 2021

A PAIR of Knowle teenagers are gearing up for an fundraising cycle challenge this summer.

Carrick Hayre and Nicole Baker will be pedalling 50miles to the Molly Olly’s Wishes headquarters in Warwick in aid of the charity.

The pair are hoping to raise £1,000 for the charity which grant wishes and donate therapeutic toys and books to terminally ill children and their families across the UK.

Carrick, age 14 and attends Arden School, said: “I decided I wanted to do something for the charity when I started doing my Duke of Edinburgh Award last year.

“I like the charity because it helps children emotionally rather than physically, which I’m not sure that many other charities do so much.”

Nicole, 13, a pupil at Solihull School, added: “I wanted a new challenge and decided to help the charity, especially after their struggle over the past year. I also love the fact that they help grant children’s wishes.”

Molly Olly’s Wishes was established in 2011 following the death of Rachel and Tim Ollerenshaw’s eight-year-old daughter Molly from a rare kidney cancer.
