He said: “I have struggled with depression and anxiety myself and know how important it is to have a good support network around you to help get you through the toughest times, and simply get out of bed in the morning.”

Josh who was aiming to raise a minimum of £100 exceeded his target in just 12 hours, having raised an extra £77.

He is documenting his charity challenge on YouTube, where he has also uploaded videos on Young Minds.
