While the biggest challenge for most 10 year olds this Easter will be trying to resist eating all their chocolate eggs at once, one youngster is setting himself a rather more significant test – in aid of charity.
Henry Plume, from Aslacton in Norfolk, is is preparing to walk Peddars Way, from Thetford to the coast, for EACH.
The schoolboy has already been encouraging classmates at Pulham Primary School to sponsor him for this tough 46 mile quest.
Henry, who has a brother and two sisters, said: “EACH is an excellent local cause and I’m really excited to be supporting them. I thought I’d combine some exercise before my SATs with some support for their brilliant work in East Anglia.”
EACH cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across East Anglia, and supports their families.
Tim Jenkins, EACH Norfolk Community Fundraiser, said: “I’m so thrilled to hear Henry is choosing to support EACH with his sponsored walk of Peddars Way – what a way to spend his Easter holidays!
“We support many families through the most difficult of times, but wouldn’t be able to continue providing our vital service without the support of our local community and people like Henry.
“Huge thanks to Henry for choosing to support EACH and I wish him lots of luck with his challenge!”
