A dad has pledged to shed the pounds to bring in cash for his terminally ill son.

Eddie Hodgson, of Tring, came up with the fundraiser after a heart health scare earlier this year and says it is no easy feat.

He tips the scales at 16st 4lb and hopes to get closer to 15st before the big weigh-in at the end of April.

Sponsorship means he is already up to £20 per pound lost, plus a further £40 in one off donations.

The dad-of-three is doing it in aid of his family’s drive to raise cash for son Jamie, 12, under the banner of Jamie’s Dream, which aims to raise cash to create special memories with the youngster, who suffers from congenital heart disease and other complications.

Eddie said: “I have to cut out going to the fridge for nibbles of cheese late at night, cutting out the biscuits and cakes and doing light exercise.

“The fact that people are getting behind me definitely pushes me on.”
