Charlie and pals boost appeal.
EIGHT-YEAR-OLD Charlie Graham asked his school pals to support a special charity - and they raised a whopping PS577.
Charlie, a pupil of Warwick Junior School, gave a presentation on the HELP Appeal (Helicopter Emergency Landing Pads) as his grandfather Robert Bertram is the charity's chief executive. It is the only charity in the country that funds helipads at hospitals.
Charlie said: "My grandpa told me about a little girl who hurt her head and the air ambulance landed on a hospital helipad so she could see a doctor quickly and this helped to save her life. I'm really pleased that my school raised this money."
Pupils of Drake House, Warwick, raised a total of PS577.15 by selling Christmas baubles filled with sweets to staff and pupils and holding a raffle.
