Men planning Isle of Wight charity endurance trek

A pair of men have revealed that they are planning a trek on the Isle of Wight to raise money for charity.

Dave Savage and Martyn Kennaugh will push their bodies to the limit in order to drum up funds for the Southampton Hospital Charity, which will be used to buy new pancreatic cancer equipment, reports the Southern Daily Echo.

They plan to swim to the Isle of Wight across the Solent, before taking on a 60-mile run around the perimeter of the island in a challenge they have dubbed the Great Wight Attack.

Mr Kennaugh explained that he wanted to do something after losing his father to the cancer.

"I felt there was nothing I could do to make a difference. My reason for taking on this crazy challenge is because I now feel that I can," he said.

This comes shortly after the Isle of Wight County Press reported that thousands of pounds were raised for the Isle of Wight Youth Trust at a gala held at Ventnor's Royal Hotel.
