A WINSFORD schoolboy managed to smash his original fundraising target to raise £300 for local good causes.

Fraser Kenyon challenged himself to raise £150 for three local charities by getting on his bike while not in school due to the coronavirus lockdown.

The eight-year-old decided to cycle 20 miles per week over five weeks to collect vital funds for Winsford Grange Care Home, Tarporley Cottage Hospital and Mid Cheshire Food Bank.

When asked why he wanted to raise money for these causes, Fraser said: “I’d like it to help children get regular meals when they are not in school.

Winsford Guardian:

“I’d also like to help older people in a local care home, like the one that my great nan stayed in.”

His mum and primary school teacher, Catherine Kenyon, added: “We settled on Winsford Grange Care Home and Tarporley Cottage Hospital as they are in the local area and have supported family members in the past.

“Fraser also thought it would be good to support local children during this difficult time, which is why he picked Mid Cheshire Food Bank."

Fraser says that all of the money he was able to raise will be split equally between the three good causes.
