A colleague from The Breeze news team has announced plans to trek up Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain, to raise funds for the Hampshire and Isle Of Wight Air Ambulance. I admire her bravery and hope she raises lots of money.

When it comes to doing charitable things I’m a wimp. I’ve been approached to swim with sharks – an offer I quickly turned down. Apparently I would have been safe inside a cage, but I couldn’t get Jaws out of my head. I’ve also been asked to skydive, but the thought of leaping from a plane isn’t for me.

I’ll stick to doing Movember. Growing a moustache is much safer even though I look like a member of Village People.
