Well done Ashley James – brother to four-year-old Edward who, along with their mum, has life-threatening allergies. Ashley, who suffers from asthma himself, is 13 but is already an old hand at awareness raising as, with all of the rest of his family, he took part in the Bupa Great North Run in support of Allergy UK who have been hugely helpful to the whole family. (Edward ran one mile in 12 minutes – which is pretty hot stuff if you are only four; Ashley did the full 13.1 miles!)
Ashley latest idea is to ride his bike to and from school every day for 10 weeks which will clock up 375 miles – and to try to raise a pound for every one of those miles for Allergy UK! His dad will be riding with him each day and he will be adding daily updates to his Facebook page here . He starts next week…..
