An Anglesey teenager will travel around the Island on a charity mission with a difference.

Lillymarie Williams 15, will be “Travelling in Hope” aboard her bow top gypsy wagon pulled by her ponies to collect money for Ty Gobaith and Hope House who supported her best friend Courtney Jones who died of cancer at the age of 14.

Lilymarie said: “I wanted to do something to remember Courtney and help other young people who are going through the same struggles.

”I thought the ponies would standout and attract attention.”

The journey which starts and ends at the green near Beaumaris life boat station aims to raise £3,000.

Katrina Lawson, area fundraiser for Ty Gobaith said: “Support from the community is vital to the survival of Ty Gobaith. We are delighted that Lillymarie is dedicating her summer to help the children and families we look after.”
