A fundraising teenager from the Fens has nearly completed a mammoth 260-mile sprint while raising nearly £1,500 for NHS charities.
James Hall from Wisbech has ran 238 miles as part of ‘The 2.6 Challenge’ which is the equivalent of a jog from Fenland to Buckingham Palace and back.
The 14-year-old has so far raised £1,479 for NHS Charities Together and is urging people to support him during the final steps of his challenge.
He said: “Only 36 miles to go now, sorry for not posting again sooner, I have been extremely busy!
“Please continue to support my challenge, now we are nearing the end of my massive run, it is now or never!”
