The 24-year-old fundraiser, who left his home at Canterbury, Kent, in August, is currently visiting Welsh lifeboat stations during his venture, all in aid of saving lives at sea.

The challenge, ‘Long Walk Round’, is expected to take two years to complete and has already raised over £2000 for the charity. 

RNLI Angle Coxswain Lewis Creese said: “We welcomed Alex to the lifeboat station late on Thursday afternoon (19 February). He enjoyed a rest day at Angle on Friday and resumed his walk on Saturday morning. He’s taking on an amazing challenge – all to help us save lives at sea.”

Alex said: “RNLI lifeboat crews save on average 23 lives at sea every single day.  In my opinion, they’re heroes. They put themselves right in the thick of what is Britain’s most unforgiving environment – our sea.’
