The Webster family of Heanor helped para-triathlete Phil Hogg in his dream to compete at the Rio Games by donating him £300 after they held a fundraising barbecue.

Guests enjoyed tombolas and cream teas at the event, which raised £1,000 altogether - £700 of which went to sponsor poor Peruvian children through Compassion UK. Mum Rachel, 44, said: “When Phil came in to do a talk at our kids school he was a real inspiration. They just wanted to do something to help him.”
