An eight-year-old boy has raised £1,000 for a charity which supports his grandmother, who has multiple sclerosis.
Freddie Hopkinson cycled 14 miles along Bournemouth beachfront with his father Oscar to raise the money for the Hertfordshire MS Therapy Centre in Letchworth GC.
Freddie’s grandmother, Nora McKee from Aston, is a regular user of the centre, which provides physiotherapy, oxygen treatment and a range of complementary therapies for people with MS.
Freddie, who lives in Hampshire, said: “Thank you so much to all the kind people who sponsored me. I am happy to be able to help my Nana and other people with multiple sclerosis.”
Mrs McKee said: “For someone so young to think of others in this way is fantastic. I am very proud of him.”
