UK Charity Dad Determined To Keep Busy
Friday 10 April 2020
From UK newspaper Wigan Today:
Wigan charity dad determined to keep busy
A dad who enjoys taking on wacky challenges for charity is certainly not putting up his feet after having to postpone his latest fund-raiser.
Nigel Brookwell had planned to walk 26.2 miles - the distance of a marathon - in a vintage diving suit weighing a whopping 80kg.
He was going to split it up into 26 shorter walks in a variety of locations, including Haigh Hall, Rivington, Manchester city centre and even Snowdon, and collect donations for charity as he went.
It was his latest physical challenge in aid of charity FORME, inspired by his son Harry, now 17, who was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome, also known as ME, in 2016.
But Nigel, who lives in Swinley, has had to postpone his fund-raiser due to the coronavirus pandemic and the restrictions put in place.
