St Neots businessman, Frank Golden will be lacing up his walking boots to take on a daunting challenge to raise funds for a children’s charity.
Frank, who owns Print Hut - a printing company based in Eaton Ford has set himself the challenge of walking non-stop around the Isle of Wight, which is 106km and will take approximately 30 hours.
He will be raising valuable funds for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) when he completes his walk on April 30.
This is not the first time Frank has pushed himself to raise money for EACH, in June 2014 he cycled one mile on a unicycle without putting his feet down raising £2,500.
Mr Golden said: “I’ve already started training for my walk 106km around the Isle of Wight which is so far going really well. It’s a daunting prospect but I love a challenge and I’m very focused on my goal of completing the walk.

“After my last challenge in aid of EACH I was invited up to their Milton hospice to see the amazing work they do for families and children with life-threatening conditions and end of life care.
“These families receive incredible support and without fundraising the charity’s services of medical, emotional and informational support would not survive.

“I’m asking people to donate where ever they can as I train for my non-stop challenge around the Isle of Wight.
“There will be no sleep, lots of blisters, sore feet and hips along the way but given what so many of EACH’s families go through this will be a small price to pay.”
