A six-year-old boy decided he would help other children by creating drawings and selling them to raise money for a good cause.
Young Harry Pedley from Tadley has raised more than £230 for Children in Need, after creating around 25 drawings.
Speaking about how the Pictures for Pudsey idea came about, his father Lee Pedley said: “Harry came home from school a few weeks ago and randomly said I want to help other children and raise some money for Children in Need as his school had been talking about it.
“My wife asked Harry what he wanted to do and he said can I do art? And if people want a picture I can make them one?”
He said he and his wife Donna agreed they would help him in his fundraising idea.
He added: “We are so proud of our son Harry for coming up with this idea. We [now] really [want] to get the word out for him especially with him only being six.”
On his fundraising page, people have praised Harry for his lovely idea.
Zara Stacey commented: “Brilliant work Harry. What a very kind little boy you are.”
Christine McGarvie said: “I think what you are doing is amazing. Keep up the good work. I’m sure you are very busy drawing pictures already so I would just like to donate. Well done.”
The money raised for Children in Need goes to a variety of charities across the UK includeing hospices, support groups for disabled and disadvantaged children, children’s homes and family projects.
The charity which started in 1980 raised £xxmillion during the event on Friday last week.
