Eight year old Harry Leigh took part in the Hastings Half Marathon Mini Run on Sunday to raise more than £200 for the Seaview Project, which helps to support homeless people locally.

Harry is a pupil at St Mary Star of the Sea school. Mum Kerri Leigh said: “Harry understands that not everyone is as fortunate as him and he wanted to raise some money and make a difference to the lives of the local people of Hastings. “

The Seaview Project is an open access wellbeing centre offering help and inspiration for people living on society’s margins. The charity helps those in need of housing get a home. For more about Seaview and the work it does in the local community, visit
