SALFORD LAD ETHAN EVANS RAISES THOUSANDS FOR ST ANNS HOSPICE
 

Star date: 26th December 2013

ETHAN CHARITY PRINCE OF SALFORD 

Eleven year old Ethan Evans has raised over £5,500 for St Ann's Hospice this year through bag packing, social events, raffles and corporate donations.

Ethan, who is also one of Britain's top swimmers for his age, has overcome his own problems and is now hell bent on helping others. 2014 will see him embark on fundraising for Francis House.

The last time Salford Star featured Ethan Evans, he was busy swimming to raise money for Royal Manchester Children's Hospital cancer unit, having overcome a life threatening illness himself and recovered from injuries after being run over on Langworthy Road (see previous article – click here).

Since then, Ethan, who swims for Salford Swimming Club, has become the top British swimmer in his age group for the 100 metre Butterfly Stroke, and has raised thousands of pounds for various charities - £10,000 altogether. 

A big social event at the Langworthy British Legion, bag packing at Tesco and donations from corporate sponsors has helped him raise £5,500 for St Ann's Hospice this year. In 2014 Ethan is aiming to raise a big amount for Francis House children's hospice, beginning with a campaign for people to collect loose 1p and 2p change in a jar. 

"It was sometimes difficult raising the money but I am overjoyed at not only reaching my target but beating it for the hospice" says Ethan "I am very grateful to all those people who helped me and especially Honda and Tesco for helping me with such a large amount.

"I am looking forward to fundraising for Francis House hospice in 2014" he adds "And from a personal point I am now ranked the fastest swimmer in my age group for the 100 Butterfly stroke in Great Britain which makes me very happy. It makes my family very proud that I am not only a great swimmer but that I help so many people who need it."
