The seven-year-old has collected more than £500 for the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) to help families have a place to stay close to their children while they are sick in hospital.

During lockdown, Rylie has been walking, running, scooting and cycling for a minimum of 25mins to raise as much money as he can for the 'amazing' charity.

His mother Tara wanted to shine a light on his efforts for taking on the Zero2Hero25 challenge.

She said: "He was inspired to do this due to his baby sister being very unwell and being in hospital, so we actually stayed in the Southampton Ronald McDonald house for a few weeks while she received the care she needed.

"He really enjoyed his time at the house, the staff were very friendly, and the other parents we met were lovely, so he wanted to give back and help more parents stay close to their sick children.

"Myself and his dad are very proud of him for doing this and raising money for such a great charity, as we don’t think many people know about them or what they actually do. "

Rylie is having to do a minimum of walking, running, scooting or cycling for 25 minutes each day.
