State of Mind presenter Jimmy Gittins who was paralysed playing rugby league completed a 2.6 challenge charity walk on crutches last weekend

Jimmy who was left quadriplegic after an incident when playing rugby league has walked 26 laps of his house for charity.

Jimmy Gittins, who broke his neck while playing rugby in 2002, has raised more than £7,000.

He said he was inspired by Captain Tom Moore, who raised more than £28m for NHS charities.

He said: “It’s to show people that even when we think we are flat and we’re down and the situation’s not very good, we can still make a positive out of it.”

Everyone at State of Mind Sport are immensely proud of Jimmy’s achievements and well done on your mammoth effort supporting charity
