That’s enough to answer 458 calls to Childline.
Ivy Holder from Bromborough in the Wirral, decided to take on the challenge after talking with her parents about how for some boys and girls home isn’t always a safe place.
“When lockdown began, Ivy saw it as a bit of a holiday but as the days went by, when she began to ask about Coronavirus we had to talk to her about the realities of the crisis.”
“In a very age-appropriate way, we talked about how for some children, home isn’t a sanctuary, a place away from all the things that can harm you. That there may not be children having as much as a nice time as we are together. Ivy is so kind-hearted she wanted to help.”

Ivy’s mum and dad, decided to buy Ivy her first big bike as an early birthday present after spotting the NSPCC’s cycle 300 challenge. Kathryn added: “She is loving the cycling each day and proudly tells everyone what she is doing and who for.”
It has become a real family affair with even two-year-old brother, Brax, managing 33km on his balance bike. But there have been some tribulations along the way. One day Ivy heavily collided with an adult cyclist travelling at speed, despite her cuts and bruises Ivy got back on her bike and finished her allotted distance for that day.
On Saturday, her extremely proud parents have arranged for family, school friends and Ivy’s class teacher and Headteacher to come along, at an appropriate social distance, to cheer on Ivy on her last km.
Dan said: “We wanted to share seeing Ivy crossing the finish line with her friends and family as it such a tremendous achievement for such an essential service. Everyone has been so supportive of Ivy and we can’t thank enough all those friends, family, neighbours and even strangers who taken the time to donate.
Ivy and her little brother Brax’s support couldn’t come at a more crucial time as despite having to close the night service for the first time and having a 30% drop in volunteer hours, due to counsellors having to self-isolate, Childline is battling to still be there for children across the UK. Since January Childline has delivered almost 7,000 counselling sessions to children concerned about Coronavirus alone.
The NSPCC, which runs Childline, grows increasingly concerned about the number of children who will experience abuse or neglect due to the impact of Coronavirus, with families struggling with lockdown, job losses and school closures.
This survey has revealed that Scousers want a haircut above anything else after lockdown. Agree?

“What an incredible amount of money to raise, well done to Ivy and her little brother. It is always tremendously uplifting to hear about children, like Ivy who want to do all they can for children not as fortunate as themselves. Sadly, we know that for many children, home isn’t a safe place and they need our Childline counsellors more than ever. This is the greatest challenge we’ve faced in decades and we are calling on the support of the public to help us ensure we can still be here for children.”
