Seven-year-old cycles ten miles to save the rainforest
A SEVEN-year-old has cycled ten miles to save an acre of rainforest.
It was not all hard slog however as Freddie Jemison did stop for an ice-cream half-way through the course.
He has raised more than double his intended target of £100 for the World Land Trust, accumulating £206.25 so far in donations including Gift Aid.
Mum Alexandra Jemison, 40, of Queensthorpe Road, Sydenham, said: "He has always loved animals and wants to become a wildlife presenter when he’s older.
"Last year he organised a very successful World Animal Day event at St John's Church, in Penge High Street, to benefit charity Tiger Time- and I had to dress as a tiger in the school playground."
Freddie said: "My legs felt like jelly after the bike ride.
"I hope it will inspire get other people, even adults, to do this."
The World Land Trust is an international conservation charity, founded in 1989.
