Chloe Ashton set herself a goal to raise money and food donations for the Trussell Trust.

14 year old Chloe, who plays for Downton Girls Football, wanted to use her footy skills to support the food bank charity.

She set herself a target to kick her football up in the air 100,000 times in a week.

Yesterday (3rd May) the South Wilts Grammar School pupil completed her final 'keepie uppie.' 

Chloe told Spire FM she was delighted to finish.

"Thank you everyone for all your support and kind donations.  I am really pleased to have completed the challenge, I am now really tired!"

WATCH CHLOE IN ACTION:

Dad, James, says his daughter's dedication stood out.

"I am so proud of Chloe.  Her commitment in completing the challenge was fantastic." 

CHARITY:

Chloe has raised more than £1,110 for the Trussel Trust with money still coming in.

If you'd like to show your support you can via her JustGiving or Facebook page.

Last year Salisbury Foodbank provided emergency food to 5,100 people, 1,900 of them were children.

The city's foodbank has been an increase in demand due to the coronavirus pandemic.
