Joe Hughes from Littleborough
A Littleborough teenager is raising money for NHS charities – by cycling 150 miles over 30 days.
Since starting on 8 May, Joe Hughes, 13, has so far raised over £400, and has cycled around 56 miles so far.
After initially aiming to raise £250, he decided to increase his target after hitting it in just one day.
He said: “I am raising money for the NHS so that I can help fund the amazing work that they are doing during this difficult time, so that they can continue to treat people with Covid-19 and other illnesses that people are dealing with.”
Joe is tracking his progress using a Fitbit fitness watch and app, and uploading maps of his routes onto his crowdfunding page.
His dad, Adam Dawson, said: “His family are incredibly proud of him and the determination and resilience he has shown throughout his challenge.”
