Oxenhope schoolboy George Ellis is offering car-parking at his home to Tour de France visitors (7748253)
OXENHOPE boy George Ellis raised £100 by opening his family’s property as a car park on Tour day.
He charged £3 each for people to put their cars in his parents and grandparents’ joint driveway and field.
The proceeds will support Oxenhope Primary School’s campaign to raise money for a new bike shed.
George aimed the car park at residents who lived on the Grand Depart route and were forced to move their vehicles for the weekend.
