George Wellington, seven, recently completed his challenge after deciding that he wanted to make a difference and help nurses and doctors during the pandemic.

George went for scooter rides around Biggleswade every day with his father, Nick, choosing to use his daily outside exercise as a chance to help the NHS.

Mum Sam said: “We’re really, really proud of him. It’s been really positive.

“He’s probably now got a clearer understanding of the pivotal role of the NHS, and an understanding of coronavirus generally.

“We’re just enormously proud of his commitment; at the age of seven he thought: ‘What small part can I play?’

“He travelled for three or four miles per day, which is a lot when you’re only seven.

“It was originally £100 for 100 miles but he ended up raising £150!”

George has enjoyed the weekly clap for key workers, and bought a special rainbow t-shirt to wear during the event.

The Biggleswade Academy pupil also made his very own guitar to play in order to make even more noise for our key workers.

Commenting on his challenge, George said: “When I finished I felt really happy. I wanted to help the NHS because they were helping so many people. The money will help people and make sure they don’t die.”

The family wishes to thank everyone who has donated so far.
