KIDS ARE ALRIGHT FINALIST 018: Jamie Cole, 17, from Whittlesey.

FEARLESS Jamie became our final nomination of this year’s challenge after he braved a staggering 450ft abseil to raise money for charity.

The Sir Harry Smith Community College sixth-form student abseiled down Guy’s Tower in London in the latest of a series of stunts and events that have seen him raise thousands for the British Heart Foundation and Sue Ryder Care.

Jamie said: “I have met some of the people that get help from these charities and they’re very optimistic. It sounds a bit cliche, but it does make you think.

“It’s just about taking a couple of hours out of your weekend to do something for charity.”
