An eight-year-old Boston boy has completed a sponsored walk around Cadwell Park to raise cash for the charity which helped to save his great-grandma’s life.

Joshua Hallam completed a 2.2 mile of the lap following racing by the Classic Touring Car Racing Club.

Dad Martyn said: “He did this in aid of The Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance as a thank-you for helping his great nan earlier this year.”

Martyn said that the relative, who asked not to be named, was flown from her home in Holbeach St Marks to Lincoln County Hospital in just 13 minutes, adding: “Whereas it took my parents an hour-and-a-half by road. She is recovering well.”

Joshua initially hoped to raise £70 through his walk but has already succeeded in gaining ten times that – with the total currently standing at £710.

“We are amazed by the total raised,” said Martyn.

“Joshua wanted to pass on thanks to the crew of the air ambulance for all they did to help.”
