A woman from Cumbria is aiming to raise £200 for charity through the power of Beatrix Potter. 

Claire Blaney, from Maryport, is hiring out her Peter Rabbit costume to schools across Cumbria, to help raise money for Hospice at Home West Cumbria. 

She usually goes to schools herself but this year has decided to rent him out for £40, with the hope of raising £200 for the charity. 

Peter Rabbit is one of the famous inventions of Beatrix Potter, who lived in the Lake District in her later years. 

Claire still has two dates available on March 11 and 13.
