Cody Slessor set up a JustGiving page with help from his mum Stacey as he wanted to do something to raise funds for a local charity that helps homeless people.

Cody challenged himself to abstain from sweets and treats for the whole of March because he knows that homeless people don’t get treats so he wanted to raise the cash to give them a better life through the support of Frontline Fife.

Pavola Slessor, Cody’s gran, said: “We’re extremely proud of what Cody has done to help people who are struggling with homelessness – ever since he was young his heart was always in the right place.

"The challenge has been hard for him as he is sweetie daft, but he managed it and we are all over the moon for him.”
