BIG-hearted Jonathan Nason is marking 60 years of the Duke of Edinburgh Award by fulfilling 60 personal challenges to raise money for vulnerable young people.

And this week he was at Avoncroft Museum of Buildings forging chain links as part of his Diamond Jubilee mission.

Jonathan received his gold award from HRH Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh at Buckingham Palace while attending The University of Birmingham in 1970.

As well as the personal challenge he’s also hoping his efforts will inspire young people to take on challenges of their own in the open air.

Other challenges include a 100 foot abseil from the roof of Birmingham Metropolitan College, climbing three Wainrights in The Lake District, and learning how to make kites.

He’s set himself the target of raising £750 and people can donate through his Just Giving ar his Twitter hashtag #60460streak.
