Daniel McKay is entering the Isla of Man Manx Telecom walking race this weekend.

He’s hoping to raise £1,000 for the St Catherine’s Hospice.

The race takes place during Saturday 22 June into Sunday 23 June.

It won’t be Danny, from Preston’s, only challenge as next year he is planning a 100-mile event round the Guild Wheel.

He will try to walk the 21-mile loop five times inside a 24-hour period.

You can sponsor Daniel via his Justgiving page.
