Captain Ben raises £3,000

11-year-old Ben Payne from Lincoln took on the task of walking up and down his stairs over 1,500 in less than 24 hours and has raised an amazing £3,000 for the NHS. Captain Ben was inspired by the famous Captain Tom Moore and wanted to do something himself to help. Ben spent over 17 hours on Sunday climbing his stairs and walked the equivalent of 3,408 metres. You can still donate to Ben’s virtual 3 Peaks Challenge here.
