A charitable young Burnley boy has taken it upon himself to donate half his winnings from a duck race to Pendleside Hospice in memory of his grandmother, who died eight years ago.

Benevolent nine-year-old, Ziggy Hoggatt, who attends St John the Baptist Primary School, won the handsome sum of £100 at the event, organised by his youth football team, Fulledge, and wasted no time in insisting he wanted to donate half to the hospice where his grandmother, Judith Donnelly, died.

Ziggy’s aunt, Carla Dixon (35) said: “As soon as he found out he won, the first thing he said was ‘can I take half to the hospice?’ We’re all really proud.

“His nanny was treated there, but he was only one when she died. He won’t remember her, but when it comes to Christmas and his birthday he always puts a bit of money aside off his own back. He’s a lovely little boy.”
