When eight year old Finley Street heard that the animals at the Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary had lost one of their shelters in a storm, he wanted to help.

Although Finley, who has autism, felt sad about the news, he decided to do what he could to help.

The Ryde boy made posters and distributed them to local shops, encouraging them to donate to the donkey sanctuary.

But that wasn’t enough.

He then wanted to do a sponsored jump to raise more money.

Finley did 500 consecutive jumps without stopping in six minutes.

His mum, Sarah, said: "Although it was very cold that day the jumping kept him warm enough to keep going.

"To some that may not seem like a hard task, but to Fin with his additional needs it was a challenge that he achieved. "

Finley raised £272 and last week handed the money over.

He even got some time with the donkeys at feeding time.

Sarah said: "Even though Finley’s challenge has ended there is still plenty of time for anyone to donate direct to The Donkey Sanctuary if they wish."

Finley has Forest School teachers who provide his one-to-one education.

Sarah said: "We are very proud of his generous spirit, particularly after overcoming so much in 2021. We are thrilled that Finley has started 2022 on such a positive note."
