Schoolboy unveils life-size statue of himself at Legoland

A young schoolboy from Lincolnshire has been honoured for the thousands of pounds he has raised for charity in memory of his mum. Jack Covill-Lowndes was just three when he lost his mum to cancer.

He got all his friends involved in a whole school fun run to help with the fundraising and has now won an award for his efforts, including a life-size model of himself made out of Lego which was presented to him earlier. James Webster was there.

Lego honour for Lincolnshire boy

A 10-year-old boy who has raised thousands of pounds for charity since he lost his mother to cancer has been immortalised in Lego.

Jack Covill-Lowndes, from Wainfleet, Lincolnshire, was nominated by his family in a competition run by Legoland to find a true life hero.

The Magdalen School pupil has raised thousands of pounds for charity since his mother Steph lost her fight with cancer in 2006.

Jack beat thousands of other nominees to be named Lego City Hero and today came face-to-face with a life-size Lego version of himself at Legoland in Windsor.

Around 35,000 of the famous Lego bricks were used to build the statue of 4ft 6ins Jack.
