A seven-year-old boy who decided to walk the grounds of Audley End House for Support 4 Sight has donated more than £150 to the charity.

Tyler Start was inspired to fundraise for the charity after a talk given to his Beaver group, and soon signed up, along with his dog, Jimmy, for the Support 4 Sight Dog Walk.

The event, which took place in March, saw Tyler walk the grounds of Audley End House – about 2.5 miles – before participants were treated to a gun dog demonstration and dog show.

Support 4 Sight offers help to people with sight loss in Essex, and is based in George Street, in Saffron Walden.

Natalie Emuss, community ambassador, said “Tyler is an incredible young man and encouraged his whole family to get involved to help raise funds for Support 4 Sight.”

Tyler’s cheque was presented to volunteer Eileen Gladman and mascot, Seymour the Dog.
