Eight-year-old Caitlin raises more than £200 for cancer charity.

A young fundraiser from Rousdon rolled up her sleeves and mucked in to raise more than £200 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Caitlin Haydon-Sycamore, who attends Mrs Ethelston’s Primary School, took part in a sponsored muck-out and helped groom the horses at Devenish Pitt Stables in Farway, where she goes riding.

It has been a difficult time for the eight-year-old after her mum Dana was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer in Janaury 2012. However, she was keen to give something back to a charity that helped her mum, who finished her treatment last September and is now doing well.

Caitlin thoroughly enjoyed her day of mucking out and grooming.

She said she felt great about raising £216.50, especially as she enjoyed the day a lot.

Caitlin was really pleased that she also got to groom Freddie, who was the first horse that she rode at the age of four.
