Lilly and Charlie raise an amazing £1,600 for Cancer Research UK

Two Seaton youngsters got muddy – and cleaned up for charity.

Lilly Greenacre and Charlie Evans, both six, completed the Pretty Muddy Kids obstacle course at Exeter and raised an amazing £1,600 for Cancer Research UK.

The youngsters, who attend Seaton Primary School, had originally set out to collect £500. In the end they raised more than they ever hoped for.

Lilly’s dad Tom explained: “They did the race for two special reasons, Charlie lost his granddad to cancer and Lilly lost her little friend this year to cancer and she was only a baby. So this fundraising was really special for them and they received some amazing support on the day from friends and family.

“Charlie and Lilly are really inspirational and they put a lot of hard work and effort into their funding raising and we would like to thank all our family and friends who supported them.”
