The large-hearted eight-year-old schoolgirl from Villupuram, who broke open her piggy banks to contribute to the flood relief in Kerala, was rewarded on Monday for her generous gesture with a brand new bicycle.

Hero Cycles gifted a bicycle to S. Anupriya, a Class II student, who donated her piggy bank savings of the last four years.

Mr. Shanmuganathan said Manoj Kumar, Sales Manager of Hero Cycles had contacted them over the phone and lauded the little girl’s gesture. The couple along with the child went to a cycle store in Villupuram where Anupriya selected a blue Hero Sprint 20 T bicycle.
