Six-year-old Alfie completes tough mountain challenge
A DETERMINED six-year-old has climbed Mount Snowdon to raise funds to help pre-school students feel more included.
Alfie Frame, from Tytherington, came up with the idea to install a bench at Little Eagles Pre-School in Nether Alderley, where pupils can sit to let other students know they are feeling left out.
And after walking for almost seven hours, Alfie, who is a student at Nether Alderley Primary School, has completed his challenge, rasing £1,125 towards the bench.
Dad Mathew said: “I’m so proud of Alfie. The weather was awful with thick fog, driving rain and sub-zero temperatures at the summit. He found the last mile really tough but his determination that he would succeed never wavered. We are extremely grateful to the community for the support Alfie has received both in terms of donations and the kind messages; we received significant support from Cherry Blossom Bakery in Macclesfield and donations from as far afield as the USA.”
Marie Danby, trustee director at Little Eagles, said: “We are ever so grateful to Alfie for taking on such a huge challenge. We are looking forward to installing the friendship bench and know that it’ll really help the children establish those crucial strong friendships for life.
“We hope Alfie’s drive and compassion will inspire the children and help us to instil similar qualities in the children we are nurturing here at Little Eagles.”
