James Brindley is 32 years old and uses a wheelchair to get around, living in an annexe of his family home with the help of carers 24/7.

Although he cannot speak, James can still communicate and explains: “When I was younger I used to go to St Francis School in Lincoln and I loved it.

“With the help of my family and friends and carers I am going to go for walks in my wheelchair to raise money for the school.

“I am trying to do 90 miles from March 18 and to complete it by April 30 (six weeks).”

He will be assisted by his eight carers and has invited people to sponsor him via his Go Fund Me page here: https://gofund.me/0d371f9b and has already gathered £610 of his £700 target.

The money will fund some equipment for the school kitchen for its students.

Rachel Lee, one of his support workers said it an amazing school, and added: “It’s alot of stress and strain on his body and we’re so proud of him and the amount he has raised so far. “
