Little Paxton Resident, 9 year-old Ben has set himself a Charity Challenge to raise money for Hinchingbrooke Hospital on Just Giving.
Inspired by Capt Tom Moore - on 16th April, Ben's challenge is to run 1000 laps of his garden (which equates to a marathon) by his 10th Birthday on 5th May.
A fund raising target of £300 was set and Ben has already smashed through this and when including 'gift aid', the amount raised so far is £1,000 (= £1 per lap).
To achieve his 1000 lap target ,Ben is running in excess of 53 laps every day - and is now up to lap 593.
Hinchingbrooke Hospital is aware of Ben's fund-raising - and is in regular touch with the family and promoting through their comms channels.
