Young swimmer raises £600 for Rainbows

A big-hearted six-year-old has swum a staggering two-and-a-half miles for charity after she saw a youngster suffering from cancer.
Little Freya Cooper has raised £600 for Rainbows completing the sponsored swim at the age of 6, after telling her grandparents she wanted to do something to help children who are poorly.

All donations to Rainbows are special but none more so than monies raised by children for other children and young people who don’t enjoy the same good health. :)
