Twins Caprice and Elise White, 15, Shannon McNeil, 16, Casey Gardner, 14, and Stacie Holmes, 18, need to raise £650 each and they are starting their efforts with a Ride for Romania fundraiser tomorrow.

They will be taking it in turns to cycle on a static bike for 24 hours and have arranged a range of stalls and activities alongside.

All are welcome to the Wickbourne Centre, in Clun Road, Littlehampton, between 10am and 3pm for stalls, crafts, challenges, a cake sale, raffle and more.

Littlehampton mayor Billy Blanchard-Cooper will be popping in to support the group as they attempt to cover the full distance from Littlehampton to Romania, a total of 1,910km, in 24 hours.
