WHAT IS the best thing you can do with a fiver?
That was the question asked to 16-25 year olds in a national competition which has been won by a Chester schoolboy.
Jordan Mason, 17, of Byron Close, Blacon entered “The Fiver Challenge” through Facebook.
Inspired by Comic Relief’s efforts this year, Jordan suggested £5 to pay for tablets which would allow enough time for four seriously ill children to get to hospital and therefore save their lives.
His entry, “£5 to save four lives”, won the selfless category, and he was rewarded with an iPad 2.
The West Cheshire college student said: “I thought this was the best use of a fiver because a fiver is nothing to us but being able to save four lives is astonishing for such a small amount.
“I always give to Red Nose Day. I did actually donate a fiver and I’m glad I did because I know I have helped to save four children's lives.
The competition was run by www.thesite.org, part of Youthnet and funded by Citi Foundation.
Youthnet is an online charity which helps 16-25year olds make more informed decisions about their future.
