Inspirational fundraiser takes on 10k hike in bid to raise £500 for NHS

by Danielle Thompson (May 2020)

AN INSPIRATIONAL fundraiser has walked 10k for the NHS during the coronavirus lockdown.

Michael Weston, 34, from Netherton, walked from his home in Seaforth to Hall Road Rail Station and back again with his sister, Hayley and their friend, Shelby.

He did this to raise funds for the NHS despite his own disabilities, which include Cerebral Palsy, epilepsy, asthma and Raine Syndrome – and he has already reached £445.

He has just £55 left to reach his goal – and you can add to his donations at https://www.facebook.com/donate/239668123783442/

His proud sister Hayley said: “My eldest brother Michael completed a 10k walk to raise money for the NHS.

“He is unable to work due to his disabilities and he decided with what’s going on at the moment and the NHS working hard to help save lives and risking their own lives, he wanted to raise money for them and decided he was going to walk 10K to do this.

“He struggled as one part of his body is weak due to the cerebral palsy he but did very well and smiled till the very end!

“He wanted to do this off his own back for the NHS and he did really well.”
