That this House commends Cornbank Primary School pupil Blake Young for using his daily exercise time during lockdown to run at least 2.6 miles a day, amounting to more than the distance of a marathon over the course of a week, to raise money for SIMBA; notes that SIMBA is a charity which supports baby loss at any stage of pregnancy, something that has touched Blake and his family personally; congratulates Blake for raising more than £700 for the charity; and highlights the importance of exercise at this time, as well as the innovative opportunities for fundraising that lockdown presents.
