On Sunday 11th September 15-year-old Riley Kenney, from Milton Keynes teamed up with nine members of The Henry Allen Trust to take part in a 55-mile bike ride from London to Brighton. This gruelling challenge was undertaken to help raise vital funds and will help The Henry Allen Trust to continue to support children, teens, young adults and their families battling childhood cancer.

Throughout the challenge Riley and Team Henry wore black ribbons and were part of a two-minute silence to pay their respects and remember HM Queen Elizabeth II.

After completing the 55-mile bike ride Riley said “What a brilliant day and I was so proud to be part of the amazing London to Brighton Henry Allen Cycle Team, I’ve never done anything like this before, but loved every minute of it (well apart from the puncture) and I definitely earned the fish & chips at the finish”

So far, Riley and Team Henry have raised a staggering £2,100 (140% of the target). You can still show your support by donating via Team Henry's L2B Cycle 2022 - JustGiving

The Henry Allen Trust’s Director and Founder, Dawn Allen who also took part in the challenge added “The youth of today get such a wrap and we wanted to celebrate Riley. What an incredible achievement from Riley and the whole team. Henry – it was a super touch challenge. The Henry Allen Trust will make this one of our annual events as we honestly enjoyed it so much. Thank you to everyone who continues to support Henrys legacy”
