Boy gives Christmas gift to hospice

Eight-year-old Jack Wilson from Wigan won the Creed bike in a raffle at his Beavers group but decided it was too big for him.

His nanny Lynn Wilson works at Wigan and Leigh Hospice as a Healthcare Assistant for Hospice In Your Home, a service which supports people with life-limiting conditions in their own homes.

She said: "Jack comes to every Hospice event with me such as Light for a Life, the Garden Party and the Christmas Market so he knows the Hospice. He said the bike was too big for him so he wanted to give it to the Hospice where nanny works."

Christine Edwardson, Community Fundraiser, said: "It is incredibly thoughtful of Jack to think of others and donate his prize to the Hospice. His gesture means another child will have a wonderful present to open on Christmas Day and he has helped the Hospice to raise vital funds."

The bike raised £40 for the Hospice.
