Colette Fuller said: “We are really excited for the event but we might regret it making this decision at 4am. We hope to get a good turn out, we have invited friends, family and anyone that wants to pop in and give us their support.

“We will need all the support possible, as it will be a really tough challenge especially in the heat. Getting a good turn out and boosting our fundraising will make all the difference.

“So anything anyone can do to help to keep us motivated and keep going will be amazing and really appreciate.

“We will be looking forward to completing it and getting a beer at the end!”

You can donate to the cause via the Just Giving page and follow the event on Facebook.
