The money raised is enough to send one child to America. Cameron, a Central Lancaster High School pupil, completed the zip-wire with his dad, Gavin, best friend Maisie Richardson and Mark and Lisa Dickinson. As well as raising money for Dreamflight, who have supported Cameron, he also took part to commemorate the life of his friend, Will Lewis who lost his battle with leukaemia in June 2014. Will was due to take part in the challenge. The family would like to thank everyone for their support. Pictured from left Maisie, Gavin, Cameron, Mark and Lisa.
