A two-year-old boy with disabilities has managed to raise over £5,000 for a Bucks charity by walking 26 steps.

Vincenzo Passaro, who has to walk with a walking frame, raised the money for Thomley who look after people who have both physical and mental disabilities in the county and the surrounding areas.

The toddler walked 26 steps as part of the national 2.6 challenge, which is the fundraising campaign to help charities cope during the current coronavirus pandemic.

On April 26, the London Marathon was due to take place with charities across the UK benefitting from the money being raised from the race.

Thomley, which is Worminghall in the Aylesbury Vale District, was going to benefit from the race.

Following the cancellation of the yearly event, Vincenzo’s mum Lucy Alder and father Bruno Passaro set up a Just Giving page with the initial target being £260.

So far, £5,575 has been raised with Vincenzo completing his quest on April 26.
