Four-year-old Marley Keen has smashed his original target and raised a staggering £1000 to help wildlife threatened by the Australian bushfires.
BUzz news reported last week that Marley will be cycling 1o miles this Saturday, after seeing coverage on the news of the bushfires which have devastated 12.4 million acres of land in eastern Australia.
Marley set an original target of £100 but a GoFundMe page has now raised over £1000 which will be split evenly between the Australian Wildlife Information Rescue and Education Service (WIRES), and a smaller charity which they have not yet decided.
