PEDAL POWER: Croxley pupils set to cycle 100 miles honouring their grandmother

Three Croxley pupils are set to take on a massive cycle challenge to pay tribute to their grandmother and raise money for charity.

Brothers Dillon, Devan and Kush Borkhatria who are pupils at Croxley Danes school are cycling 100 miles over three days in July after their grandmother sadly passed away last year.

The cycle challenge serves as a way to honour their nani Chandrabala Himatlal Nandha and raise money for sight loss charity Vista.

Their mother Prashanti said she beyond proud of the boys who have raised over £1,500 so far to honour their nani.

She said: “Due to the lockdown restrictions the boys couldn’t go and see her for the past year, they were very close to their grandma so they were really upset when she passed so I said why don’t we do something in her memory.

“It was an idea they came up with all by themselves, Dillon and Devan started the JustGiving page and wrote it all themselves.”

Prashanti added that the challenge will be a great way to celebrate which would have been her mum’s 81st birthday.

She said: “My mum’s birthday was July 15 but none of the family was able to be there with her so we thought it would be good to mark the occasion that way with the boys cycling on July 16, 17 and 18.”

The family will also be hosting a fundraising event on their driveway near Cassiobury Park on July 18 to raise even more for the charity which provided vital support for their grandma.
