Ryan Bickle

Age 10, Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria

I’m only 10 years old, but I try to do what I can to help other people. It all started when my grandad died. He was one of my favourite people to spend time with, and when he died I cried for days. I decided that I should do something to help other people who had the same illness as him, so I held a jumble sale and made money for the Hospice. Next I made lots of loom band bracelets and sold them for Children in Need.

That’s not all I’ve done. When I was seven years old I persuaded my dad to help our teachers and children in my class when we were learning about healthy eating. Dad works at the hospital as a chef and my class
designed meals which we served on the children’s ward. Now, every Year 3 class in my school does it too.

Although some children don’t have much, I always give some of my birthday money to charity, and my mum thinks it’s great when I clear out my bedroom to take things to a charity shop. I also like to help my great grandma, who can’t see very well. I always help her walk her dog otherwise she might fall somewhere, like into the sea. Even though I’m only 10, I’m doing all the things I can think of to make the world a little bit better.
