On 12th September, Ian Douglas will be setting off from his home in Southsea to catch the hovercraft to Ryde in the first leg of a pretty awesome challenge.
He’s going to be walking around the Isle of Wight with a tumble dryer on his back. Yes, you read that correctly, with a tumble dryer strapped to his back.
The challenge by the rugby-playing NHS nurse is not just for the fun of it, Ian is hoping to raise at least £5,000 for Charlie’s Beach Hut.
A very worthy cause
Charlie’s Beach Hut is a charity that provides families of children with life limiting illnesses and families of fire-fighters that have suffered bereavement, or life changing injury whilst in the line of duty, a relaxing environment so they can forge some forever memories, in a hope that they too can ‘Find the Wonderful in Today’.
It was set up by the family of five-year-old Charlie Codling, who tragically passed away from a brain tumour in 2012. Find out more about this wonderful charity by visiting their Website.
