A SIX-YEAR-OLD from Darwen is completing 3,000 exercises to help raise money for BBC Children In Need.

Every day from the start of the second national lockdown, Harry Emmett, from Darwen, has been doing 100 gruelling exercises, including burpees, squats and mountain climbers, doing a different exercise every day for 30 days.

Harry believes that lockdown is hard for children and wants to help raise money to help children who need it.

Harry’s mum, Emma Lord, said: “I’m incredibly proud of him for doing it every single day and really grateful for the support from everyone.

“The generosity and the support he has received, I am proud of Harry but I am also proud of everybody else as well for supporting him, especially when times are tough.”

His original target was to raise £100, which he’s smashed and raised £642 in the first seven days.

He has now raised nearly £1,000 for the charity after 12 days of gruelling daily exercises.

Harry is posting daily videos of the progress he has made so far to allow donations to track his progress for the fundraiser.
