Isabella's mum, Kelly said: "I run a department at Bolton Foundation NHS Trust which ends up dealing with a lot of cancer sufferers.

" Bolton Hospice offers invaluable services to a lot of people who need support in their time of need."

In the last couple of years Isabella has been on the fundraising trail for The Royal British Legion, cycling the Leeds - Liverpool canal and the National Three Peaks challenge in under 24 hours.
