Talented Brynlee Robins organised an art exhibition at his school to help injured, sick and orphaned wild animals.
Brynlee exhibited his work at Clevedon School where he is a pupil to raise money for Secret World
Brynlee, 14, set up the display of work by pupils in his year group at Clevedon School, North Somerset, raising more than £60 for Secret World Wildlife Rescue, based near Highbridge, Somerset.
The money came from donations made during the show, which was such a success that the teenager is already planning another one.
His mum Hayley Jones, who has her own studio and gallery in Clevedon, judged the entries with fellow artist,Mandi Baykaa-Murray, of Yatton.
Hayley said: "Brynlee and I both love wildlife. The exhibition was something Brynlee organised by himself, with some help from friends."
Brynlee, who is also a keen painter and especially likes working with acrylics, said: "We get a lot of wildlife in our garden and Secret World is a charity close to my heart. We were shown around the centre when we visited to hand over the money and got close to some badgers and foxes."
Secret World fundraising co-ordinator Debbie O'Keefe said: "We are always thrilled when young students such as Brynlee go to such huge efforts to help raise funds."
