4-year-old triathlete raises more than £1,000 for charity

A four-year-old girl who completed a triathalon last month has raised more than £1,200 for charity.

Effie Bowman from Castle Gresley in Derbyshire underwent a four-mile bike ride, a 200-metre run and a 50-metre swim to raise money for the YMCA.

She more than doubled her target of £550 and has also donated some of the money to her local school which will go towards building a new outdoor classroom and play area.

Effie's mum, Donna Reid, says Effie's already signed up for her next challenge - sleeping in a box for a night on the 11th of November. Ms Reid says she's the youngest person to sign up for the fundraising event.
