The average charity challenge or fun run usually follows the same routine: a JustGiving page is set up, maybe a website, a few tweets and maybe an inspirational blog to conclude.

However, one City broker has raised the bar after getting an end­orsement from BBC presenter Ben Fogle, well-known for his adventures from trekking the Sahara desert to running marathons in the Dolomites, for his own charitable excursion; a 1200km cycle from Brisbane to Sydney over five gruelling days.

Wilkinson, who was in the middle of a 60km cycle when The Capitalist caught up with him, said that he met Fogle last week, who was “in­cred­ibly supportive” of his efforts to raise money for Macmillan next month, and agreed to an interview in a documentary Wilkinson is recording all about the challenge. Swish.
