A seven-year-old boy is doing his bit to help the NHS as the country continues to battle through the pandemic.

Isaac Jones, who is from Aylesbury, is currently cycling 21 miles to raise funds for the service, after he found inspiration through the late Captain Tom.

The 100-year-old army officer walked 100 laps in his garden in the spring of last year in aid of NHS Charities Together, which raised a staggering £32m, when his original target was £1,000.

And just like the national hero, Isaac has already exceeded his total of raising £100 as so far, he has helped raise £1,407 and counting for the NHS.

He began the fundraiser on Monday, February 1 but due to weather conditions, he may complete his challenge via walking.

On his JustGiving page, it reads: “At New Year, Isaac declared that he wanted to set himself a cycling challenge in 2021, to raise money for the NHS.

"Last year, he was inspired by the plight to get the Nightingale Hospital off the ground and donated some of his own money to the NHS to help buy more beds for those sick with Covid.

“This year, he has been watching the news and wanted to take his efforts one step further and came up with a cycle challenge.

“He has chosen to undertake a virtual challenge over the next month, whereby he covers the distance of the English Channel which is 21 miles.

“He aims to primarily do this by cycling but may also include walking, depending on the weather.

“Any amount would be hugely appreciated!

“Thank you very much.”

Isaac embarked on his cycles after being homeschooled, and he is one of many people in the country to have been motivated by the late Captain Tom to help the NHS.

A source close to Isaac said: “Whilst out on his cycle rides, wearing a homemade charity bib, we have had members of the public shouting support, beeping horns & stopping to pass on cash donations.

“The support and generosity, especially from complete strangers, is humbling and heart-warming, in these tough times.”
