Five-year-old Ollie Hall has run a marathon in 30 days for Plymouth Hospitals Charity.

Taking on a mile every day in fancy dress, Ollie Hall challenged himself to run 26 miles before he turned six yesterday (June, 8).

Among many others, Ollie's fancy dress costumes have included Harry Potter, a vampire, a pirate, superheroes and a knight of the NHS.

Ollie’s Dad, Chris, explains that Ollie has been inspired to find ways to help other during the COVID-19 outbreak: “About four weeks ago I was going out to get our weekly shop.

"Ollie came to me with his hard earned pocket money and asked me to spend it on buying cakes for his teachers and friends who were still at school to cheer them up.

"We bought lots of cakes and he took them to school the following day. The teachers and children were over the moon."
