Har­ri­son and Mickey Mouse team up for chop­per fund

Warwickshire Telegraph - - NEWS -

A SCHOOL­BOY from Bed­worth will con­tinue his fundrais­ing for The Air Am­bu­lance Char­ity this weekend – with the help of Mickey Mouse.

Har­ri­son Smith, a pupil at Race Leys Ju­niro School in Bed­worth, will be col­lect­ing for the life­sav­ing char­ity at Tesco in Bed­worth town cen­tre to­mor­row along­side Dis­ney’s most fa­mous mouse.

The 11-year-old has al­ready held a raf­fle and a non­uni­form day at the school where he is a head boy.

Mum Leigh Smith said: “Har­ri­son loves watch­ing shows about the emer­gency ser­vices such as Coun­try­side 999 and Traf­fic Cops and is re­ally in­ter­ested in the work of the air am­bu­lance.

“One day he turned to me and said ‘did you know that it doesn’t get fund­ing from the Govern­ment’, and he de­cided to do some­thing.

“Also one of his teach­ers was in a car crash and the air am­bu­lance flew her daugh­ter to hospi­tal, so it is quite close to his heart.”
