WHAT happens when three brothers aged four, six and eight take a trip to Winchester?

In Harry, William and Ted's case, it results in a 90km bike ride for charity.

When the siblings from Selborne visited Winchester to buy school shoes, Harry, four, saw a homeless person for the first time.

His mother Candida said this inspired him, his two brothers and dad Richard to cycle and raise money for The Prince's Trust.

She said: "When we went to Winchester during the summer to buy school shoes, Harry saw his first homeless person and has talked about him many times since.

"Not a week goes by without us talking at length about homelessness; it’s made a real impression on him."

The boys set out to raise £100 but have now raised more than £1,000 for The Prince’s Trust, which supports 11 to 30-year-olds who are struggling at school or are unemployed.

Candida continued: "Harry is desperate to give it in person – it’ll only be a small amount. It has turned into something much bigger than we were originally expecting. "I’ve actually never donated to a homeless person before so, it is a wonderful experience to be taken on, for the first time, by my four-year-old son."

When the family returned to Winchester they were unable to find the young homeless man.

Harry could remember exactly where he saw him before but there was no sign of him or any of his belongings.

They did chat to another man who was in a shop doorway.

Harry gave him a blanket, a couple of blueberry muffins, a chocolate bar, an apple, a newspaper, a teddy rabbit and some money.

Candida added: "The man’s face literally lit up and he was hugely grateful – even for the rabbit.

"He explained to Harry, 'I get a bed and a hot meal from time to time, via an incoming message on my phone, but most of the time I am sleeping on the streets'.”
