He will hike 175 miles along Cornwall’s coastline in just seven days to raise awareness of RDT’s work. Bryan’s ramble will start in Newquay and finish just north of Mevagissey a week later.
Bryan said: “In simple terms that’s nearly a marathon a day for seven days. The charity is 175 years old in 2018, so the distance seemed appropriate. I want to raise awareness of the help that RDT can give people from the home improvement industry and, although I say it myself, it’s a fabulous charity that does fantastic work.”
He added: “We’re delighted that Dulux are on board as the lead sponsor, but we still need a whole heap more sponsors so we can drive hard to help more people from the industry who are struggling. Without the ongoing support that our sponsors have given us, we wouldn’t be able to help so many people who need us. Our work at RDT is absolutely vital for so many people, so please sponsor the walk, no matter how small the amount.”

His venture coincides with the launch of RDT’s new partnership with Tenovus Cancer Care, a cancer charity that supports cancer patients and their families, funds cancer research, and works to raise awareness of how to prevent cancer.
