Kindness Intro Chat
Grange Hill 6:12
Peppa Pig 6:51
Theo Harvey 11:32
Theo lost his sight after developing a brain tumour aged nine and has since spent months in hospital for treatment of benign tumours. Inspired to help others living with sight loss, 15-year-old Theo set out to fundraise to name as many guide dog puppies as he can for Guide Dogs. So far Theo, who currently has a buddy dog from the charity and hopes to have his own guide dog one day, has raised more than £10,000 to name puppies Theo, Harvey, William – after his grandfather – and Kit, after his brother. Theo, who lives in Aberdeenshire, raises money through running challenges and tandem bike rides and is well on track to naming his fifth puppy.
Brynn Hauxwell 13:06
Teenager Brynn has taken part in long-distance wheelchair challenges since 2020 to fundraise for Ability Shetland, the charity that helped to support him in his love for getting outdoors. Brynn, 17, has autism, ADHD, severe asthma and fixed ankle contractures, and relies on a wheelchair to get around. Determined to give back to the charity, in 2020 he decided to push himself 1,679 miles – a distance equivalent to the length of Shetland’s coastline. The following year he wheeled the distance of 16-half marathons in the month leading up to his 16th birthday. This year he set himself the challenge of travelling the 84-mile Hadrian’s Wall Trail. Brynn, who lives on Shetland, has inspired followers on social media by promoting inclusivity, particularly in sport.
