More than 60 people are taking on a fitness challenge to help their mental wellbeing or support their community, friends or family.
The 401 Foundation, founded by Portishead’s Ben Smith, encouraged people to sign up to the 401 Challenge this month.
People taking part need to complete 401 of their chosen activity, whether it's miles, kilometres, minutes, repetitions or creating something 401 times.
They have between Monday and January 31 to complete their challenge. They can choose to fundraise for The 401 Foundation or for themselves.
The 401 Foundation said: “Having a target can help motivate us and assist with our mental wellbeing, so for each of our 62 amazing individuals, their #FindYour401 challenge is personal.
