Charlie got to put his feet up after walking the Yorkshire Three Peaks for charity.

Blessed Trinity Roman Catholic College student Charlie admitted the 24 miles was ‘tough’ but his group earned around £900 for The Georgia Fourie Butterfly Fund.

Georgia Fourie attended Holly Grove, a special needs school in Burnley, and died after many years of poor health.

Charlie’s brother Stanley, three, has severe autism and sensory processing disorder and attends Holly Grove.

“I was the youngest in our eight-strong group led by my uncle and a team from UniPlay, in Blackburn, who make school playground markings, among other things.

“I raised around £90 on my own. It was really hard. By the second peak, Whernside, I was flagging and then third, Ingleborough, was really tough but I got through.

“I am proud to raise money for a fund which is close to my family.”
