Dylan creates grotto to raise funds for St Clare’s Hospice

Dylan joined Harton Academy from Westoe Crown Primary school in September 2017. For the last five years Dylan has dedicated the winter time to raising money for charity by converting his bedroom into a grotto for local residents to visit. During this five year period he has raised a large amount of money for charities in the local area. He has also completed numerous fund raising events during the year, including tombola’s and raffles. Dylan has a number of ideas for future fundraisers and he is already planning out next year’s events. Dylan has recently won the “Child of Achievement” in the South Tyneside awards.

Local paper The Shields Gazette caught up with Dylan and interviewed him in his grotto.
