Welcome to the world of Stuart Kettell whose first challenge in 2007 was a flight around the UK coast in a flex-wing microlight aircraft

Stuart has raised nearly £60,000 for the charity over 14 years by completing an annual “wacky challenge”.

His feats included spending a week suspended in the air by helium balloons, pushing a Brussels sprout up Mount Snowdon with his nose, and cycling from John O’ Groats to Land’s End in a pedal-powered bathtub.

In 2021, Stuart walked raised money to fight cancer by walking backwards for 100 miles between Northampton and London.

In 2022, Stuart will take yet more steps backwards, by running the famous London Marathon, you guessed it….backwards!
