A GENEROUS little boy has raised more than £300 for a mental health service by selling homemade food and drinks at his kickboxing club.

Rylie Cruikshanks, a pupil at Harmans Water Primary School, was inspired to do his bit for Kilpatrick Consultancy after hearing about the mental health service from his mum Steph and her friend.

Over the past two weeks, the 10-year-old boy has managed to raise money for the service which helps homeless people who suffer from mental health.

Steph said: “Myself and my friend wanted to do something – my friend recently became a mental health consultant so it came from her realising that many homeless people often suffer from mental health issues.

“Rylie does kickboxing at Brakenhale School and decided to set up a café there, and any money made would go towards buying vouchers and food for the homeless.”

Rylie has dedicated two evenings of the last three weeks to raising money, and has managed to collect £331 for the cause.

“He has done most of it by himself, including making the flapjacks, rocky roads, cakes and things like that,” added Steph.

“His main aim was to put it towards Greggs vouchers but he later decided to split it between the two causes. I’m very proud of what he’s achieved.”
