A 10 year-old Norfolk boy has been doing his bit to make a difference during the pandemic, cycling hundreds of miles for charity.

Finley MacFarlane, from Hethersett, had challenged himself to cover 200 miles over a fortnight - but smashed his target in just eight days.

All the proceeds are going to the Norfolk and Norwich Hospitals Charity, helping health staff tackle COVID-19 at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals, Cromer and District Hospital and Jenny Lind Children's Hospital.

He is now looking to achieve 300 miles during the two week time-frame.

On Saturday 23 May, the schoolboy pedalled for 66 miles with his Dad after biking from his home to Caister - and back again!

"A very proud father" is how Ian MacFarlane described himself - his son has raised over £550 so far.

You can donate to Finley's challenge by visiting Joanna MacFarlane's fundraising page here.
