A 19-YEAR-OLD from Hailsham is speeding towards her fundraising target after completing a testing 100-mile bike ride.

Lucy Williams, of Milland Mews, her dad and neighbour pedalled along the South Downs Way from Winchester to Eastbourne and raised £1,300 to get her on a plane to Costa Rica on a Raleigh expedition.

She hopes to be involved in protecting turtles from poachers and other predators on Costa Rica’s beaches.

Raleigh, a registered charity, tries to inspire people to make a difference to communities and environments across the world. She needs £1,750 and is still appealing for funds.
