A YOUNGSTER from Kirk Michael has cycled 150 miles during the Easter holidays to raise money for three charities.

Cameron Hawes, who is just seven, is still collecting the sponsorship money but expects to have reached his £900 target.

He was raising money for St John Ambulance (Isle of Man) Cadets and Badgers, Kirk Michael School and Ghamrang School in Nepal, and the Vagabonds youth rugby team.

In order to clock up the miles, Cameron used both his road bike and his mountain bike in a series of rides in various locations around the island.

He cycled two laps of Archallagan, laps of the National Sports Centre, and finished on Tuesday with the Royal London 360 cycling races.

As well as being a member of the Team Royal London 360 cycling league, the Manx Mountain bike club and BMX Isle of Man, Cameron has also been a member of the Vagabonds Rugby Club since he was four.

Cameron was sponsored by estate agents Black Grace Cowley, who supplied cycling tops.

His mother Rosie Hawes said Cameron wanted to thank everybody for their support during the rides, particularly his cycling friends who accompanied him on some of his rides and everyone who sponsored him.

Last year Cameron rode 100 miles during his Easter holidays and raised £1,140 for three local charities.
