Evans Cycles Chris works his magic!
As their charity partner we are lucky enough to be able to utilise the national network of Evans Cycles Stores to deliver our bikes to children fighting cancer across the UK. This story perfectly illustrates how the partnership between CFC, the families and Evans works at it’s best. “On Saturday afternoon, we went to the Chelmsford branch of Evans Cycles & collected our daughters’ bikes. How Amazing! I cannot put into words, just how excited the girls were & how completely fantastic the staff at Evans were too! The whole experience was just wonderful. They made both Malika & her sister, feel so special. The bikes are fabulous! Malika hadn’t learnt to ride without stabilizers before being diagnosed at the age of 5, with Acute Lymphoblastic leukemia. Unfortunately, over the 2yrs & 4 months that followed, of being on chemotherapy, she was often so tired or unwell that she never learnt. On Saturday though, Chris in Evans, told her that if she went out on her new bike, he was sure within in an hour, she’d be riding!…….Unbelievably it took her just 45 minutes!!! To add to the emotion & shock, her 4yr old sister decided her new bike didn’t need stabilizers either & after school yesterday, she too was cycling all by herself!!!! Thank you so very much. What a wonderful charity you are. You’ve made 2 children extremely happy. Malika & Adlias’ Mummy & Daddy xxx” Massive thanks to Chris at Evans ,Chelmsford.
