Have your say

BEAR Grylls is challenging the people of Portsmouth to raise £100 for charity in the most adventurous way possible this summer.

The 38-year-old adventurer and television presenter is fronting A Summer of Adventure – a new fundraising campaign from the UK-based charity Hope and Homes for Children.

Whether it is running around Fratton Park 50 times in a lunch break, or kayaking along Southsea seafront, Grylls said it could raise vital funds for children growing up in bleak orphanages across the world.

Bear said: ‘No challenge is too big or too small.’
