The girls, who both play netball for their school and are members of Preston Netball Club, have been meeting almost every day since closed schools at the beginning of January for daily exercise, a routine five to six mile walk.

Jenna said: “We have enjoyed walking together as part of our exercise. We decided to challenge ourselves to walk the Guild Wheel and thought it was an ideal opportunity to raise money for a charity close to both our hearts.”

Jenna and Emma are fundraising for Rosemere

Jenna, who is also a member of Preston’s Red Rose Olympic Cycling Club, and Emma, who is taking GCSE PE, are hoping to complete the wheel in less than eight hours and have set up an online sponsorship page here.

Both Jenna’s grandad and Emma’s uncle have received treatment at Rosemere Cancer Centre, Lancashire and South Cumbria’s specialist cancer treatment and radiotherapy centre at the Royal Preston Hospital, following cancer diagnoses, so it holds a special place in their hearts.
