Zac Daffern goes the extra mile for Myton

Think back to when you were 7 years old. Would you have given up your Sunday morning to walk 3 miles for a local charity? On 15th May, Zac Daffern from Nuneaton joined 706 other walkers to do just that.

Equipped with his Spiderman cap and Myton t-shirt, the 7 year old took on the 3 mile route with his mum, Rachel, and dad, Neil. Not only did Zac successfully complete the 3 mile route but he also managed to raise an amazing total of £118 thanks to donations from his friends and family.

Zac has autism and attends Oak Wood School in Nuneaton. The school regularly identifies opportunities to fundraise for both national and local charities and has supported Myton for a couple of years. As a pupil at Oak Wood School, and therefore a frequent fundraiser, Zac wanted to take part in Walk for Myton as a way of thanking Myton for caring for his grandad, Eric Daffern, who sadly died before Zac was born.

We would like to thank Zac and his family for taking part in this year’s Walk for Myton and being three of the hundreds of walkers who helped us raise £37,469.60.

We are so proud and honoured to have such inspiring people like Zac supporting our work and hope to see him and his family again at next year’s event!
