Rossetti backs boys' skatepark endeavours

TWO boys have teamed up with an Italian restaurant in Henley to give the town’s skatepark project a funding boost.

Sidni Brener and Jem McAlister, both 11, have been holding stalls fortnightly in Market Place, selling home-made cakes and sweets, second-hand toys, books, games and three-dimensional models.

The boys give a minimum of 25 per cent of their profits to a local good cause and decided they wanted to give their latest total of £60 to the Henley Skate Park Initiative.

Meanwhile, Umberto Fiorenza, who runs Rossetti in Market Place, agreed to pledge a further £100 towards the skatepark after spotting the boys’ stall.

Colin Brathwaite, who chairs the Henley Skate Park Initiative, said: “I think the boys have been absolutely fantastic. They have showed great entrepeneurial spirit, real initiative and have been a great example to the rest of the town.
