A schoolboy has raised hundreds of pounds for vulnerable children.

Witham Hall School pupil Henry Saunders Watson, 11, decided to help Kesteven Children in Need after his school picked the charity as one of four to support.

Henry, who lives in Rutland, has worked tirelessly to raise money for the charity over the last three years.

His most recent fundraising effort was a collection at the entrance to Rockingham Castle, at which he raised £569.

That brought his overall total to more than £1,600.

Kesteven Children in Need is a voluntary organisation that works closely with health professionals to help keep some of the most vulnerable Lincolnshire children and their families safe and well.

Chairman Lucy Lee said “We place a huge value on local children working hard to help other children from their own communities and areas.

“In particular, we’re incredibly grateful to have such great champions as Henry and Witham Hall School.

“With such a small wholly voluntary charity like ours, every penny received is spent where it can make a real difference in a family’s life.”
