Archie sets his sights on help­ing oth­ers


SCHOOL­BOY Archie Tom­lin­son has em­barked on an in­spi­ra­tional mission to help peo­ple less for­tu­nate than him.

The seven-year-old from Macclesfield, re­cently or­gan­ised a raf­fle in sup­port of Royal Manch­ester Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal rais­ing an im­pres­sive £94.

No sooner had he handed over the cash Archie was onto his next mission.

Archie, of Bryn­more Drive, is an in­spi­ra­tion to his fam­ily, in­clud­ing mum Char­lotte, 28, dad Adam, 29, and broth­ers Ai­den, five, and Char­lie, 18 months.

Mum Char­lotte said: “Archie watched a pro­gramme about the chil­dren with can­cer at Royal Manch­ester Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal. He is a very sen­si­tive boy and im­me­di­ately wanted to help. I sug­gested dif­fer­ent way he could fundraise and he chose to or­gan­ise a raf­fle. We had a lovely ham­per and Archie went around his friends and fam­ily sell­ing tick­ets. In just two weeks he raised £94, which doesn’t sound much, but it is a big achieve­ment for him.

“He now wants to do more char­ity work. We are very proud of him.”

Puss Bank Pri­mary pupil Archie’s next mission is a cake sale to sup- port Wa­ter Aid, which im­proves ac­cess to safe wa­ter, hy­giene and san­i­ta­tion around the world.
