James's F1 challenge

The F1 season may have started in Australia under a cloud of controversy, about cars being too quiet and the disqualification of home-grown talent, but here at Joshua our motor racing season could not have gotten off to a better start.

The only thing is that we don't have a car (quiet or otherwise) nor do we have a driver. What we do have is an incredible pair of legs, in the form of James Pollard, who tackled a half marathon at Silverstone for Joshua and raised an incredible £421.50 in the process, smashing his original target of £300.

And apart from running 13.1 miles James also had to contend with the wind and rain. But despite al this he remained very positive "It was great a day, a touch cold at the start but I soon got warmed up! I didn't set any records but was pleased with the time. It was fantastic that so many people supported me and beating the donation target was the best result"

We would like to say a huge thank you to James for undertaking such a massive challenge all in aid of Joshua.

If you fancy running, walking, swimming, or selling cakes for Joshua, just drop Heather a line on for help and advice.
