But Burnley’s Alfie Hale has smashed that and some to raise £1,500 for Pendleside Hospice by walking a mile a day in the summer holidays. Staff at the hospice surprised him with a ‘thank you’ cake when he presented a cheque.
Alfie (12) wanted to do something to repay the hospice for the care they are currently giving to his dad, Gordon, who is terminally ill.
Taking a different route each day from his home in the Lowerhouse area, Alfie wore a bright yellow Pendleside Hospice t-shirt.
On Saturday, September 2nd, family and friends, including his mum Jane, joined Alfie for his final walk in fancy dress ending at Sycamore Farm pub where Gordon was waiting to greet them.
