A Dorset man has taken on a fundraising challenge with a difference, as he aims to raise funds to find a permanent home for his band.

Rik Vanhoutteghem has decided to run 24 hours bare foot!

His band, The Durnovaria Silver Band is currently bidding to raise £70,000 to convert the former Fordington Methodist Church into the Durnovaria Community Hall.

Rik alone wishes to raise £5,000 and he hopes his quirky challenge will spark the public's interest.

Rik will begin running at 3pm on the grass track at Thomas Hardye School and aims to reach Dorchester Borough Gardens at 2pm the following day as his band are playing.
