A TEN-YEAR-OLD boy from Salisbury has raised £600 to help young homeless people.
Nye Doherty, who has hypermobile joints, challenged himself to run 10k on a treadmill in stages last month.
He raised £600 for Centrepoint, which provides housing and support for more than 1,000 young people every year, helping them into work and a home of their own.
Nye said: “I wanted to challenge myself to do this because Centrepoint is a great charity with an excellent mission – helping homeless young people. I thought this was very important at Christmas. I am amazed that I raised so much and would like to thank everyone who donated.”
The money he raised is equivalent to 120 hot meals or 24 beds and a meal on Christmas day.
