Tallulah Houghton, 14, from Thorpe St Andrew, has run at least 1km each day since the start of the year to fundraise for Nelson’s Journey.

But for the final month, the Thorpe St Andrew School student has asked others to set their own 1km a day challenge and donate to her Just Giving page, using the hashtag #teamtallulah.

Tallulah said: “I feel motivated when I get donations and I think about what the money’s going towards.

“It would be really nice to know there are other people doing it as I reach the end of the challenge in December.
