58 In 58: Bolton Teen Completes Epic Challenge To Raise Money For The We Love Manchester Fund

A Bolton 16 year old's taken on the mammoth task of visiting 58 English football league grounds in just 58 hours

Nieve Pegg's epic trek - with the help of her grandad's driving - took her from Wales, to London, to Yorkshire, and back to the North West.
 

 

Nieve has smashed her £1000 target and money is still been donated.

Speaking to Tower the 16 year old said

"My original target was £100 pounds and now to go over £1100 is amazing"

All the money raised will go to the 'We Love Manchester Fund" which was set up in the aftermath of the Manchester Arena bombing.

"I read into the stories of all of the victims after it happened and obviously with Saffie been so young and the families of the different victims as well to know the money is going to help them it feels amazing"
