AN 12-year-old girl is helping to fundraise for Malton Hospital as part of a 100-day challenge.

Lexi Barber, who lives in Norton, is supporting her boxing coach, Richard Scarth. To celebrate his 50 years in Malton, Richard is raising funds for Malton Hospital as a thank you from him and the community for the vital work they do by cycling six miles a day, followed by a mile-run. Lexi’s mum, Victoria, said: “Richard has boosted Lexi’s confidence so she feels able to help him complete the challenge and raise money for a brilliant cause. Together they are a fab team.
