Mark and Jude Widdowson - a father and son from North Norfolk - have raised £3176.59 by running Fifty 5K runs over the course of May for the Pandora Project, a charity that supports women and children affected by domestic abuse in West Norfolk, North Norfolk and Swaffham.

The duo were aiming to raise £2000 for the Pandora Project but greatly exceeded their total.

Mark said:

"Jude wanted to achieve something positive during lockdown and to help raise money and awareness for a local charity. He read a lot of stories in the press and wanted to focus on a domestic abuse charity, and a small local one in particular."

A representative for the charity said:

 "We are really grateful to Mark and Jude for supporting our charity during this difficult time when lockdown has made things even harder for those living with domestic abuse.

The money will go towards supporting children and young people living with the effects of domestic abuse."
