A pair of South Tyneside schoolboys took part in an extreme challenge to raise funds for a charity that helps their uncle.

 Cousins Daniel Sayers, seven, and Lucas Ball, six, took on a sponsored extreme waterslide to raise £225 for PRS Networks, in South Shields.

 The organisation, based at Cookson House, in River Drive, South Shields, helps disabled people live more confidently.

 The youngsters were inspired to raise money by the uncle, Neil Kelso, from South Shields, who uses the service.

 The money was used to help buy a new iPad and two accessible keyboards to be used at the organisation.

 PRS Networks managing director, Pamela Seers, said: “We’d like to thank Daniel and Lucas for their imagination and bravery. Because of them, more adults at PRS can now communicate and learn in a way which suits their needs and abilities. We are delighted.”
