Mankini climber

A Thames Valley dad's been climbing the highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales for charity, wearing a Borat-style mankini.

Andrew Watt, who's 47 and from Maidenhead, Berkshire, undertook his challenge on Friday 24 September 2010 to raise money for the Sense - the national deafblind charity - and to raise awareness of Usher Syndrome, which his 16 year old daughter Molly has.

Andy says: "Molly was born hearing impaired and is now losing her sight. She’s exceptionally brave facing the day-to-day challenges, so I wanted to be brave as well as eye-catching in my Borat mankini. I hope it’s not too cold at the peaks!"

Andy's trek saw him cover 40km and involved 2,984m of ascent and descent, taking in Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in England and Snowdon in Wales - all of which have to be climbed in 24 hours.
