A pint-sized philanthropist has been praised by his friends and family after raising money for charity by making jam.
Seven-year-old Evan Welsh, of Butler Road, West Harrow, has spent his summer making jars of blackberry jam to help those less fortunate than himself.
So far the young boy has made more than 60 jars raising more than £110 through his own hard work.
Proud mum Margaret Warde said: "It was all his own idea.
"We usually make jam and give it away to people, but this year he suggested selling it and giving the money to charity.
"He has always loved to cook and often gets home from school and asks 'Mummy, can I cook my own dinner?'
"He can even make his own jacket potatoes now."
Since July Evan has been out picking kilos of fruit with his mum nearly everyday and returning home to help her crush the berries and cook them to make batches of jam.
Mrs Warde said "We sold it to people at the cricket club and to family in Ireland, one woman bought three jars and came back for more."
The St Anselm's Roman Catholic Primary School pupil said: "I wanted to help the people in Africa who have no safe drinking water and the families in China who have lost everything."
Mrs Warde's investment bank employers offered to double the amount raised, meaning £220 will be going to Save the Children and charities helping victims of the Chinese earthquake.
She said: "After the earthquake he wanted to help and then one day he saw an advert for Save the children so we decided to split the money.
"It has really taken off with people texting me for jam. Next year we are going to start early and increase our uptake."
Evan added that he wanted to thank all the friends who had helped him collecting blackberries.
