Great Cornard teen’s fundraising talent is wheely special

A 13–year–old girl from Great Cornard has raised nearly £200 for West Suffolk Hospital with a one–and–a–half mile sponsored unicycle ride.

Jess Cole, from Church Road, wound and wobbled her way from Dorking Tye to Cuckoo Hill near Bures last month, raising £194.75 for ward F7 at the hospital in Bury St Edmunds where her mum Sue works as a nursing assistant.

“I only fell off a couple of times, but it was icy so I expected that to happen,” said Jess, who began learning the skill around 18 months ago at Great Cornard Middle School, where she is a pupil.
