Webber girls make their mark as they follow in Dad’s footsteps
The past six months have been a challenging time for everyone, but enthusiasm and zest for life can’t be held down for long.
Barrow born Dan Webber, local father of four shares his story with us.
Dan said: “Going through this pandemic has been hard for everyone, but good things can still happen and opportunities still arise for people to make a difference if you really want them to.
“I am so proud of my daughters, Pippah and Izzabella, they have both achieved so much over the last six months. Having one daughter wanting to do something positive to help out at this dreadful time was just great, but then my other daughter wanted to do something too. We were mindful of social distancing and complied with Government legislation throughout the whole time but we had so much fun and it’s great to see the girls getting their teeth into something that helps to benefit others.”
Izzabella, aged eleven raised £335 in just two weeks after rewriting the well known charity single, We Are The World, with her own lyrics, inspired by the amazing work of the NHS.
The money raised is to help the NHS and to find a vaccine for the virus that is disrupting the whole world.

The Diary of a Running Girl was Pippah’s idea, and at just six years old she made it onto BBC News and ITV News during lockdown by promoting positive mental health whilst out running.

Since then Pippah has launched “FEELING GOOD FEELING GREAT” - Mini Bootcamp. A free weekly physical activity session for 5-12 year olds.
