Simon Bashford has raised more than £450 for blood cancer charity Anthony Nolan by doing a seven day challenge, including a walk from Worthing Pier to Brighton Pier and back wearing a 50-pound backpack.

From May 29 until Sunday, the Goring grandfather also did a gym bike ride and 12-hour stints of snooker, bowling, darts, pool and golf at Rustington Golf Centre and the Goring Conservative Club.

Simon, 50, said: “I’m so glad it went well. Next year I might do a charity bingo game or something more civilised!”
