ELEVEN-year-old Harry Boyle is splashing out to help Haiti earthquake victims.

The pupil at St Paul’s RC Primary School, Feniscowles, will attempt to swim 100 lengths of Daisyfield swimming pool tomorrow evening, cheered on by his friends and family.

Dad Jason, 36, said: “Harry decided he wanted to do something to raise money for Haiti after seeing the coverage on the television.

"On Sunday he decided that he’d do a sponsored swim. He’s a decent swimmer, so 100 lengths is a fair enough challenge for him.

“Usually he swims about 50 or 60 lengths at Daisyfield in about an hour, so we’re thinking this might take him about and hour and a half, hopefully he can do it a bit quicker though.”

Last week seven-year-old Charlie Simpson from London raised more than £190,000 for Haiti by riding his bike five miles around his local park.

He was aiming to make £500 in sponsorship, but raised thousands after people across the world saw his sponsorship page online.

Harry has already raised £350 from friends and family, and the power company Jason works for has offered to double the amount to £400.
