A nine-year-old from Loddon completed a sponsored swimming challenge for charity in memory of his brother.

Kiarno Perez, with the support of Loddon White Dolphins Swimming Club, swam 96 lengths at the pool.

So far he has raised £237 in aid of the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices charity (EACH).

Back in 2014, his baby brother Charlie died due to a heart condition. And following his brother’s death, EACH supported Kiarno and his family and helped create special memories with his brother that he will forever cherish.

EACH provides care and support for children and young people with life-threatening conditions and their families across East Anglia, in their own homes or in the community at one of their hospices.

They rely on public donations to help deliver their services.

Further donations can still be given at Kiarno’s Just Giving page.
