Wacky dad of 4 cycles his BATH TUB from John O'groats to Land's End in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support

Have you ever been told to take a bath?? Well 54 year old father of 4, from Warwick, Stuart Kettell (aka @themadfool) may have taken that a bit literally as he attemts to take his bath over 1000 miles from John O'groats to Land's End!

On Sunday 16th September,  Stuart set off on his gruelling challenge to cycle his bath tub - bike along the famous JOG LE run.

Why you may ask yourself- well Stuart has been fundraising for Macmillan Cancer Support for the last 12 years with increasingly bizzare and wacky challenge, including perhaps the most well known being in 2014 when his pushed a Brussels sprout up mount Snowdon with his nose!

On Sunday 23rd Sept Stuart's challenge attracted great publicity for Macmillan : one Facebook thread for the Lake District alone receiving 534 notifications, 55 shares and 39 comments. Twitter ( @TheMadFool ) is going brilliantly, with lots of sightings. He had 30 bikers all pulled up to chat to him and a particular couple tracked him and stood by the roadside for an hour especially, waiting for him to pass.

On Monday 24th September Stuart's leg of the journey will take him through Shewsbury as he travels down towards Ludlow.

Please look out for him, give him a friendly wave and if you have any spare change towards such an amazing cause then we would really appreciate it.

If you do take any picture please feel free to tag him in its Stuart kettell and via Twitter @themadfool
You can track his progress in really time by visiting;


Untimately its the support and seemingly small acts of random kindness Stuart has experienced over his journey so far that has kept him going. From cups of tea to someone paying for his lunch to restuarts giving him a free warm meal to keep him fueled!
However we do need to make sure that people know how to support Stuart, and therefore his fundraising for Macmillan Cancer Support, properly. He is now over halfway on his challenge, but not yet halfway on his fundraising target of £5,000. Can you spare him a few £££s for his phenomenal efforts? Can you share his JustGiving page or his website? Please do follow his progress over the coming week as his journey comes to its end in Land's End. Join me in spurring him on.
