A SPIRITED eight-year-old boy who was devastated to hear that there were people less fortunate than him has completed a 13 mile walk to help the homeless.

Young Noah Redmond, of Mossblown, trekked along the River Ayr walk last week (July 18) in aid of local charity SeAscape who are set to receive a boost thanks to the inspired act of kindness.

The Annbank Primary pupil wanted to do something after his mum reminded him and his sister how lucky they were on a rainy night.

Heartbroken that other people did not have a roof over their heads, Noah got to work training for his big Stair to Ayr walk.

Ayr Advertiser:

Noah was backed by his family who supported him throughout.

Proud mum Amy Redford told the Advertiser: “He managed 13.1 miles in around seven hours.

“Noah trooped on amazingly well. When we hit Ayr that’s when when his feet started to get sore, but he took every single step and actually ran across the finish line.

“We are very proud of him. We had the perfect weather for it and help along the way from family supporting us and meeting us at points.

Ayr Advertiser:

“Noah’s cousins even joined him for part of the walk to provide some support and good company.”

Noah has raised more than £13000, with £1000 going to charity SeAScape – the rest will be kept for providing warm clothes and food for the homeless during the winter


When he hit the finish line at Ayr Pier, he was greeted by family and staff from SeAScape.

Ayr Advertiser:

The charity, who have been working through lockdown to help people in desperate need, have hailed Noah for his amazing act.

And they have invited the young star and his mum to their Ayr offices when they reopen to see first hand the difference his walk will make.

Ayr Advertiser:

SeAScape’s CEO Kelsey Kane said: ““Noah is such an inspiration.

“For someone so young to want to do something so

selfless to help those less fortunate is truly amazing and to have raised over £1,000 is fantastic.

“These funds will go directly towards supporting individuals who we are assisting to access accommodation.

“So a huge thank you to

Noah from all the team at SeAscape.”
