ELEVEN-YEAR-OLD karate kid Phoebe Ackland took to Javea’s Arenal last Saturday, completing a five-hour karate challenge and raising an astonishing €1,236.58 for the Stroke Association.

It was an early start for Phoebe and her instructor Geovanny, who performed various routines from 9.00am with some help along the way from Phoebe’s karate classmates.

The Stroke Association is a charity which holds a special place in Phoebe’s heart as her grandmother, Diane has suffered at least four strokes in recent years.

Phoebe well and truly smashed her €800 target, both her mother and her grandmother expressing how ‘very proud’ they are of her.

Phoebe expresses her greatest thanks to instructor Geovanny and all her karate classmates for their support.

Well done, Phoebe!
