Dillon McNamara ran 5K in the Hospice Warriors Colour Run held in September and was sponsored by friends, neighbours as well as his teachers from Hindley Green School.

Dillon followed in the footsteps of his dad Gary who raised £600 for the Hospice after being sponsored to do the 2013 English Half Marathon in Warrington.

Mum Vicky McNamara said: "He didn't stop running once during the 5K and he'd never run that far before. He didn't know what to expect but he loved doing it and was covered in paint by the end."
