Stuart Kettell takes Macmillan fundraising to new heights

Yes hes back again & this year his 2012 challenge is even more crazy than last year!!

For several years Stuart has devised a ‘Mad Fool’ task that he does to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. His past challenges have included cycling on a replica Penny Farthing from Lands End to John O’Groats and Kayaking across the channel from France to Coventry , he suspended himself, David Blaine style, inside a Perspex box suspended above Broadgate in Coventry city centre for a week & last year he ran 7 marathons in 7 days in a giant hamster wheel!

Over the last year Stuart Kettell has meticulous calculated, plotted & planned this year’s 2012 “MAD Fool” challenge, aimed to raise money & awareness for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The idea … To be suspended for up to 12 hours a day … by just a big bunch of helium filled balloons … 14 meters in the air !!! … MAD

His Challenge started at 12pm Saturday 3rd of March & continues until midday Saturday 10th March & can be found in West Orchards Shopping Centre in Coventry.

As with previous years I was happy to photograph the launch & will be photographing Stuart’s mad challenge through out the week.

Below are a number of images I took from the launch on Saturday
