An eight-year-old bookworm is pledging to read his own height in novels within just seven months in order to raise money and awareness for a charity helping his unwell uncle.

Charlie Sturtivant, of Adeyfield, ia taking on a sponsored read-a-thon in aid of Crohns and Colitis UK, which supports his uncle who suffers from the chronic disease ulcerative colitis.

At the start of this year, Broadfield School pupil Charlie set himself the task of reading his height – that’s a whole 52 inches – in books by the end of the school year on July 18.
