Five dads from St Nicholas Catholic Church in Boldmere, Sutton Coldfield, have successfully ran the St Chad’s Way for charity.

Team St Nicholas - Chris, Stephen, Matteo, Andrew and James - completed their challenge on Saturday 2 March.

They have smashed their initial fundraising target of £500 having so far raised almost £1,500 (which doesn't include Gift Aid).

The team were waved off from St Chad's Cathedral, the Diocesan Mother Church, by Monsignor Timothy Menezes, cathedral dean, following a blessing. They also had chance to hold the relics.

They then took in a refreshment stop at St Nicholas before finishing at Lichfield Cathedral.

The challenge was organised to generate funds for the St Nicholas World Development Group (WDG), the parish charity dedicated to enhancing the lives of those in need.
