The challenge, which began yesterday, will raise money to send four children in India to school. Mr Ordish said: “For the last two years I have been supporting the education of three young girls, this year I would like to up that to four girls. They come from south of Haridwar and go to this beautiful little school.

In the last two years they have been able to read and write really well, coming home and educating their mother and father as well as being an influence in the wider community. This is making a difference. The donations will pay for the girls’ education, all equipment and for travel to and from school.”
