East Devon man to cycle 900 miles for charity to help family member to have life changing operation

A father from East Devon will cycle over 900 miles to raise money to help a family member have a life-changing operation.

36-year-old Andy Bennett, from Woodbury will ride 962 miles from John O’Groats, in Scotland to Land’s End, in Cornwall to help his cousin’s daughter Izzy have an £80,000 spine operation that could potentially change her life.

Six-year-old Izzy Pearce has Cerebral Palsy Spastic Diplegia, which limits her movements and makes her unable to walk.

Andy hopes to help Izzy’s family to raise the £80,000 they need so that she can have a Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy operation, which is not currently available on the NHS.
