Shouldn’t we be aspiring to create a generation of Charlies?


Seven year old Charlie Simpson from West London, has shown inspirational support in his fundraising bike ride for Haiti.

After watching on TV the devastating effects of the recent earthquake in Haiti Charlie said , “I want to make some money to buy food, water and tents for everyone in Haiti.”

Charlie decided that to do this he would cycle five miles (8km) around South Park near his home to raise funds for Unicef’s earthquake appeal.  He expected to raise £500 but has raised more than £160,000!
