Christopher Clarke will do a 12-hour karateathon on March 1 (his 10th birthday) he's looking for people to join and sponsor him.

A Mildenhall karate fan will lead a 12 endurance fund-raiser on his 10th birthday to raise money for charity Help for Heroes.

Christopher Clarke, of Mildenhall, is looking for others to join him in a karateathon to raise cash for the charity, which supports wounded soldiers.

He said: “The military stand up for our country and if they have been disabled or wounded that’s not right so if I can raise some money to help them, that’s what I want to do.”

Christopher enjoys undertaking sporting challenges to raise money for charity and takes part in the Barrow Challenge each year.

He wanted to organise this event as he missed last year’s challenge as his grandfather was ill.

Christopher is a keen karate fan.

He has been learning the craft since he was five-and-a-half years old and is only two stages away from gaining his black belt.

He hopes that others will join him at Suffolk Academy Health and Fitness Centre in Barrow, and take on the challenge - whether for a couple of hours or the full 12.

It does not matter of those attending have any experience e of the sport as his instructor Glen Moulds will be on hand to help out

Glen has said that those beginners completing the full challenge from 8am to 8pm on March 1 could even find themselves ready to achieve a grade at the end of the fund-raiser.

Those taking part will be charged £1 an hour, all of which will go to Help for Heroes.

If you are interested in joining Christopher’s karateathon on March 1 or would like to sponsor him contact info@suffolkacademy.com or phone 01284 810446.
