Much like many up and down the country Captain Tom continues to inspire those young and old, and Zach Alexander from Brookmans Park is no different. 

Though he likes running, the seven-year-old finds he is often getting a stitch while trying to raise money for the NHS.

He thinks they have done an amazing job during the pandemic and as his dad, Scott explains: "He also heard on the news how the Oxford vaccine costs £3 a dose so thought if he could raise money he could help to get things back to normal as quickly as possible.

"I know Zach has inspired some other children and parents to dust their running boots off and get out there. Including his mum."

Zach, a Brookmans Park Primary School pupil, will run 50k throughout January and has completed 10 so far. 

The Alexanders had hoped to raise £500 but the total is already over £1,300 on Just Giving here https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/zach-alexander1
