Editor's Viewpoint

Mum Lydia Hayes must be extremely proud of her two young daughters. In recognition of her diagnosis of breast cancer, the two girls plan fundraising events for a charity conducting vital research into the disease. But it is the sterling efforts of seven-year-old Jessy which most captures the imagination.

She intends to swim a mile - an astonishing 64 lengths of the pool - in a bid to help her 13-year-old sister raise £1,000. The little girl deserves to see her hopes fulfilled.

It is a very ambitious project by one so young, but one who defines what charity really means.
