A young girl from Chalfont St Peter is helping raise money by riding her bike for a charity that is fundraising to support children in a village in Ghana.
Amelia Graham, 7, from Chalfont St Peter decided to help Compassion Direct UK (CDUK) – a charity of which her dad is vice-chair – raise £1,000 by doing a sponsored 10k bike ride.
Dad Don Graham said Amelia always takes an interest in some of the projects the charity works on.
Amelia was born in South America, so she has seen first-hand what it means to be more privileged than other children.
Don said: “She wants to help other children around the world that don’t have as much as she has.
“I’m very proud of her and the interest she has shown, the dedication to help others is something any parent would be proud of.
“Thank you to anyone who is reading her story as it gives visibility to the achievements of Amelia and of course the village that needs so much help. If anyone can spare anything for a donation it is going to be life-changing for 166 children in the village so a big thank you.”
The charity is looking to buy a herd of Sahelian goats for a village in Ashanti, Ghana, to help reduce malnutrition of the preschool children and the community to thrive.
