Midhurst boy smashes £750 target with charity challenge for RNLI

A 10-year-old boy from Midhurst has smashed his charity donation target with his walking challenge to mark a special anniversary for the RNLI.

Nathan Jones from Midhurst said: “I’m walking 200 miles from the 12th of December to the third of March. I’m doing it because I like going to our closest RNLI in Selsey. I love seeing the boats. My Great Granny won a writing competition with the RNLI in 1936, so it means a lot to me. I’ve been going for three years and really love it there.”

There are set to be several walks that people can partake in and join in with Nathan’s challenge. The first one was a two-and-a-half-mile festive walk around Midhurst that took place on Sunday, December 17.
