Oliver’s double marathon challenge
In an incredible feat of achievement, Prep III’s Oliver Matthews completed the equivalent of two marathons in aid of homeless charity ‘Shelter’, who work to alleviate the distress caused by homelessness.
The eight year old Bridgewater pupil used his daily lockdown exercise to complete his challenge, running, scooting and cycling his way around Salford Quays and through local woodland, amassing a total of 52 miles over the course of five weeks.
His amazing efforts have raised over £1,700 for the charity, chosen by Oliver because they support people who are not as lucky as he is to have a lovely home during this difficult time.
