Michael's on a mission... but watch out for Welsh Nessie!
But this time, the Cedars Upper School pupil is determined to go bigger.
Michael has set himself a physical challenge in each of the UK’s four countries of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. And, he has chosen a charity to support for each event.
Mum Susan told the LBO: “He said he wanted to do something a bit different, bigger.
“He picked the countries out of a bowler hat and then the charities out of the other.
“He chose charities that he thought would make a difference, particularly for other children less fortunate. And he said, ‘I want to do something that’s physically challenging’.”
On Friday, June 2 he starts this challenge at Lake Bala in North Wales, which has the largest natural body of water in Wales, and even – legend has it – its own version of the Loch Ness monster!
Michael will be canoeing the length of Lake Bala and back again, a total of around seven miles, having already completed a 12-week canoeing and kayaking course to prepare. For this event, he will be raising funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital.
Further events planned are a 12-hour ‘cyclethon’ in Leighton Buzzard, climbing Ben Nevis and bouldering off the cliffs of Northern Ireland.
