COVERING 62 miles in just 10 hours, Ashley Wilson spent the day in a supermarket on a rowing machine raising money for charity.

Ashley, from Wickham, spent last Saturday in the Co-op, in Wickham, to raise awareness of his 3,600-mile row across the Indian Ocean, due to take place later this year.

The determined 36-year old has survived cancer and is epileptic. Ashley is involved with the Scouts which is why all the money raised will be split between Young Epilepsy, The Scout Association and Macmillan Cancer Support.

Ashley will be accompanied for his Indian Ocean bid by adventurer James Ketchell, who is due back from a round-the-world cycle tomorrow.

Ashley said: ‘It was a great success apart from the fact I couldn’t move the next day! The supermarket was great and so were the customers, who donated £426. Thank you to everyone who contributed.’
