Claire Brown, of Aldreth, gets an admiring look from baby brother Benjamin after
riding her pony Kizzy around Thetford Forest to raise a record sum for Great
Ormond Street children`s hospital.
Claire, 7, of High Street, Aldreth, trotted 14 miles to collect more than £200 on Sunday after 19-month-old Benjamin spent six months in the hospital with serious breathing problems. Her total was the biggest ever raised since the organised ride started 21 years ago and she was given a special head collar and rosettes.
Mum Wendy said: "We are really proud of her; she hs done very well."
"The staff at Great Ormond Street and Addenbrooke`s were brilliant with Benjamin, who is now on his way to recovery."
