Scarborough Councillor To Do 100km In 10 Days For Charity

Scarborough Councillor To Do 100km In 10 Days For Charity

Published by Karen Liu at 10:29am 15th May 2020.

A Scarborough Councillor's taking part in the 100 kilometres challenge to raise money for charity.

Neil Heritage, of Newby ward, will run or walk that distance in ten days.

He aims to raise £3280 for Saint Catherine's.

Neil said:

"Captain Tom Moore has done the 100 laps of his garden and being ex-Armed Forces myself, I want to do 100 kilometres over the course of ten days.

I've been training and I've done 44 kilometres in a week. I'm going to break into it easy and my main priority is completing the 100 kilometres, I'm not out to break any records.

I think for Saint Catherine's, especially locally, we all know how much great care they do to look after our loved ones.

For me, the charity sector can be hit hard by the cancellation of a lot of charity runs and things like that, so their funding is going to go down.

That's why I thought 'let's do something for a great local charity' and raise as much money as possible for them."

Neil has been speaking to Yorkshire Coast Radio's Paddy in the Morning:
