Feeling a little lost in lockdown and unable to see his friends, Iain needed something to focus on. To help Iain to 'stay at home' Iain and his mum Liz came up with 'Iain's Olympic 10' which has gone from strength to strength since he began on 4 May, surpassing his fundraising target of £200 after just a few days.

Iain has been staying at home with his family since the lockdown began in March and as of Friday 15 May, Iain has taken part in seven challenges so far.

The challenges included a plank for one minute, bounce and catch, mowing the lawn at his family home, 12 minutes on an exercise bike, facing his fear of cooking on the BBQ, baking the biggest cake, ironing five shirts and washing his mum's car...with three days left to go.

When asked how he is finding the challenge so far, Iain replied:

"Excellent! I'm going to keep on doing it."

Iain's mum Liz said:

"He's chuffed, this is really giving him a boost and it's something for him to focus on. I'm really proud of him. "
