Charlie Simpson, 7, raises £160k for Haiti appeal in one day




Little Charlie Simpson was the toast of Britain last night after raising an astonishing £160,000 for Haiti earthquake victims in 24 hours.


Charlie, seven, had hoped to raise £500 with a sponsored bike ride around a park yesterday. But as news of his touching effort spread thousands of people donated cash to his appeal on an internet site.
Current exchange rates put £160k at just over US$256,000. Not bad for a 7 year old on a bike.
