Thank you!!!

Thank you ever so much for the extremely kind and genourous donations. £250 in 12 hours blew our minds. First walk this afternoon when the sun isn’t too hot. Will try and upload pictures but seems to only allow small files so will try and use my technical skills. Stay safe everyone xx

Week 2 walk 1

Week 2 walk 1 (total 3 walks). 3.6 miles (5.8km) in 2 hours. Today’s walk was physically and emotionally difficult...Jack struggled with changing walk to the beach as he just wanted to play and then stung his feet on the Burrows due to not listening to Mummy. With help from a FaceTime from Nanna and Granny we got home with a free plant on the way. Aiming for 2nd walk of the week on Friday. Including cash donations we hit £888 today...incredible everyone xx

Week 2, walk 2

Week 2 Walk 2 (4 complete!!!!). Extremely proud of my boy today walking another 5k but in 80 mins!!! Didn’t manage a finishing photo as Jack knows the route and had legged it home. Keep it up Jack. Total £1161!!! Thanks again to all who have sponsored/shared/messaged...this wouldn’t be happening without you.

Week 3 walk 1

Week 3 walk 1 (5 in total complete) 5k 1hr 52 mins. Today’s walk was around Westward Ho. A lovely walk but things were tough when Jacks shoes started rubbing by mile 1 which then made it a very slow walk. But he battled through. Do you like his new walking t-shirt. NHS Superhero! Thank you all again. Thank you Jess Marchbank for a cheer and a snack!!! Xx

Week 4 Walk 2

week 4 walk 2! “(8 complete). So we must confess we didn’t get any photos today apart from the very start as there was more running involved and I was constantly making sure Jack was still close etc. We are going to complete 1 more week of 5k walks as I feel Jack has done amazing and completing 50k for the NHS is an amazing achievement! Days are becoming a bit to warm to be out walking for 90+ minutes. We are going to start doing couch to 5k but for our own personal challenge! We would like to thank everyone again for their support and helping Jack to raise £1350 for the amazing NHS....there is still time if anyone wants to donate. Page will be open until June 11th.

Week 5 walk 2

Week 5 walk 2!!! The boy has done it....50k walked for NHS charities and a total of £1470 raised. Not going to lie this has been tough physical for Jack and there has been times where the easiest thing to do would be give up but he’s kept on going for all those wonderful people!

Celebration Day!

Celebration day!!! So so proud of my boy. What started on the 23rd April 2020 as a small fundraiser to get walking for the NHS has become a massive achievement! 10 walks, 50km and an amazing £1545.00 raised. Your are all incredible. Thank you so so much for your support, love and donations! NHS and Keyworkers you are doing us all proud! Stay safe everyone xx

Jack Hopkins aged 5 from North Devon has decided to help the NHS by doing two 5k walks every week until he has to go back to school.

Since the lockdown began Jack and his Mummy Katie have made sure that they go for a walk every day to keep fit and healthy but just recently Jack had started to lose his motivation, so they decided between them that they would walk the 5k twice a week to raise money for NHS Together charities.

Jack said “I want to help the doctors and nurses save the lives of people who have the virus by giving them money”

When Katie and Jack set up the crowdfunding page in the hope of raising £30 they were completely overwhelmed by the generosity of their friends and family to have raised nearly £250 in the first 12 hours.

If you are able to help Jack with his fundraising please use the link above.

I am raising money for a charitable cause that is very important to us all in this COVID19 crisis, so please donate and help me reach my target in aid of NHS Charities Together. Anything you can contribute towards helping me achieve my target will be massively appreciated.

Thank you.
