A 22-year-old who has quadriplegic cerebral palsy raised £600 after he completed a testing walk along an old railway track.

Jacob Callaghan, from Brompton-on-Swale, took on a 2km walk to Richmond Station from St Agatha’s Church in Easby on Saturday, November 25.

It took him two hours to complete, and he was greeted with refreshments at the popular tourist attraction in the town.

He received support from his mum Yvonne, his dad Neil and brother Joseph to organise the walk.

He was inspired to raise money for Children in Need after watching footage of Matt Baker on Countryfile Ramble in aid of the charity.

Jacob has had many operations to rebuild his legs at the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle which made it possible for him to use a walker.
