In May, Moulsford Year 5 pupil Joe Barker decided to embark on some fundraising to support the intensive care unit that his Dad works in as a doctor. Joe has pledged to run a mile a day for 100 days for Oxford Hospitals Charity to support his Dad and his colleagues in ITU. Almost a month into the challenge and Joe has already raised an enormous £2,400.

Joe said: “My dad is really busy helping some really unwell patients who have Covid-19 and I want to show him how much we appreciate everything he and his colleagues are doing to help fight the virus.”

Everyone is very proud of his efforts and the work of his father and his colleagues.
