An eight-year-old Spalding boy, whose name is featured on a replica Disney cartoon car, has been spending his summer holiday organising charity fundraisers.

Jake Winkett got the fundraising bug after helping to raise the money needed to bring an adored replica Lightning McQueen Rust-eze from the film Cars back to life after it was destroyed by fire.
On Saturday, he is holding an event in aid of Amazon Children’s Ward in Peterborough at St Paul’s School in Queen’s Road, Spalding, which will be visited by the Lightning McQueen car and also features a raffle, mascots, Disney princesses, jewellery, children’s crafts, face painting, bouncy castles, children’s rides and inflatables, refreshments and music.
On Saturday, August 30, he is doing a sponsored walk for Macmillian Cancer Support around the running track at the Castle Sports Complex in Spalding.
