Ethan to run 100km for Aintree churches

Ethan to run 100km for Aintree churches

by Tom Martin (March 2021)

A seven-year-old boy from Aintree wants to run 100km in only six weeks to raise money for his local churches. 

Ethan Hollingsworth, aged seven, wants to reach the distance by April 12th and the money raised will be given four churches in Aintree Village - St Giles, Holy Rosary, Hope Centre and Aintree Methodist Church.

The Aintree Davenhill School pupil thought the money would be helpful because the churches have struggled during the pandemic.

His proud dad, Ian, said: “Our local Community Parish Church St Giles has been struggling for funding over the last 12 months during the pandemic just like all other local community churches up and down the country. This is our local Parish Community Church where his mummy and daddy got married, and Ethan himself was christened when he was just 8 months old.

“Please help our little super hero Ethan raise the funds. St Giles is a place that holds special memories for us and Ethan would like to support the churches in Aintree with this fundraiser.

“The money raised will be split between St Giles, Hope Community Church, Holy Rosary and Aintree Methodist church to support them through this difficult time - so they can be special places to others too.”
