A spokeswoman for the charity said: "Lifelites donates and maintains assistive technology for life-limited and disabled children in hospices throughout the British Isles.

"This technology gives them the opportunity to play be creative, control something for themselves and communicate, for as long as it is possible."

Simone's challenge will see her travel by a Tuk Tuk, a fire engine, a steam train, and a Ferrari, to name just a few, to locations such as Blenheim Palace, Goodwood and the National Space Centre.

She will visit a total of 48 landmarks in 15 days.
