A SEVEN-year-old Thai Boxer from Walton has raised more than £1,000 to help feed families in need this Christmas.

Ben Marshall put his talent to the test and completed 10 two-minute rounds on a punch bag for seven days, plus as many kicks as he could manage.

The funds raised from his challenge will help Craft in Mind, based in Cockhedge Shopping Park, to provide around 200 vulnerable families and individuals with a Christmas dinner.

These will be given on a nomination basis and if you know of a deserving family, you can fill in a nomination form at the Craft in Mind store or email craftinmindcic@gmail.com.

You can donate at gf.me/u/y5iamm or through Ben's JustGiving page at justgiving.com/crowdfunding/bensthaiboxingchallenge.
