A courageous 11-year-old who raised thousands of pounds for a cancer charity last year after her mum was diagnosed with the disease has raised even more money.
Becky Dutton, of Depmore Lane, Kingsley, has so far collected £377 for Macmillan Cancer Support by doing the Liverpool 1K Mini Santa Dash.
Becky’s efforts pounding the pavements in last year’s charity fun run raised more than £2,600.
The Helsby High School pupil decided she wanted to fundraise for the dedicated nurses after her mum was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2011.
Proud mum Karen Dutton, 46 - who is off chemotherapy until February 28 - said: "Becky has really enjoyed doing the Santa Dash and the sponsor money is still coming in. She is hoping to do the 5K dash next year with some of her family."
Karen said of Macmillan Cancer Support and Clatterbridge Cancer Centre, where she receives treatment: "I know they’re there at the end of the phone. I needed hand rails putting in the bathroom and they sorted it within a week.
“And the nurses at Clatterbridge are very helpful and friendly."
Becky recently made a further £87 by holding a biscuit sale for her classmates.
When she’s not busy fundraising, she enjoys playing bass guitar and is an avid cricketer.
