Big-hearted Freddie Triggol, 13, hopes to raise hundreds of pounds for Weston Hospicecare by completing a 10 mile walking challenge.
Freddie, who attends The King Alfred School Academy in Highbridge, will take part in the 2021 Mendip Challenge on 6th June.
He will be joined by over 100 staff from The Priory Learning Trust schools which includes TKASA.
Freddie says he wanted to set himself a challenge whilst raising money to help others.
It will be the longest walk he has ever done but he has been in practice throughout the lockdowns with his dad.
He said: “We decided as a family to support Weston Hospice after losing some very special people. The dedication of the staff working in all aspects of a hospice is outstanding.
“I wanted to do the West Mendip 10-mile challenge to help support a great cause. I would like to raise as much as I can to support them.”
Some 105 The Priory Learning Trust staff will also be completing walks ranging between five, 10, 20 and 30 miles.
Freddie has been part of Jill Dando news throughout the lockdowns, interviewing a range of people including a NASA astronaut.
