A PRIMARY school pupil from Peebles has been quenching thirsts while boosting the funds of an anti-slavery charity.

Roddy Kennedy spent an entire day selling his home-made lemonade on the town's High Street.

And the nine-year-old also treated the congregation at St Andrew's Leckie Church to a few glasses the following day.

In total Roddy raised £182.10 for the International Justice Mission.

Roddy's dad Dougal told us: "Roddy was excellent at explaining to everyone that the International Justice Mission is a charity which helps to free people from modern day slavery.

"He was delighted with the total sum to give to this charity and he said he was praising God for having given him the wonderful idea."

Roddy was helped by his dad and best friend, Reuben Cassidy, to make the lemonade as well as point-of-sale banners.

Roddy's eight-year-old brother, Struan, and Reuben's three-year-old brother, Caleb, also helped with serving during the High Street sale.

Reuben's mum Laura said: "The sun was shining and the lemonade proved a refreshing hit with passers-by and local shop staff alike."

International Justice Mission's aim is to eliminate the slave trade around the world.

Every year the charity helps hundreds of people.

Roddy's total of £182.10 was made up to £200 before the cheque was posted.
