Three siblings from Kenilworth really are going that extra mile to raise money for charity during the lockdown.

Luke, Logan and Erin Cassidy are aiming to run 600km by the end of the month and are well on course to achieving it.

In the process, they are raising money for Newlands Care Home, so that they can throw a big party once it is safe to do so.

Luke, 13, goes to Kenilworth School while Logan, 11, and Erin, 11, both go to St John’s Primary School.

They have been enjoying long distance running for over a year now since joining Kenilworth Runners Juniors.

Since March, they have continued to run various routes around Kenilworth and the local area, joined by their sister Antonia Keen.

Their mother, Andrea, said: "I am immensely proud of my children for their commitment to this great cause, and also delighted that they have a past time that they can enjoy and use to maintain their mental health during this time."

In April Erin and Logan Cassidy turned 11, a friend bought them a virtual run and they decided on a 100k.

Their older brother was included and their older sister Antonia decided to take on another similar challenge herself.

Within 20 days they completed the virtual run and had run altogether 422km.

"It made them think how they could in May raise money for a local charity," said Andrea.

"That part was easy Erin and Logan and other St. John’s Primary School pupils had been writing to a local residential home for young adults.

"I have been speaking to the manager there and these residents have been in total lockdown and not able to see family or friends but the amazing staff there are doing a brilliant job and keeping them safe and most of all well.

"So we want to raise £500 so when it’s safe to do so, a party will be organised with food entertainment for all the residents and staff and also family and friends."
