AN Evesham man is taking on a charity triathlon with a twist this weekend.

Sam Cullis will be running for two miles before cycling for 10 miles and then carrying a 25kg bag of cement for three miles on his way to Tesco where staff, police and fire service staff will walk him in to the station.

He is taking on the challenge, at 9.30am on Saturday, June 27, to raise money for the fire service and to help spread some cheer.

He said: "The reason I am doing this is to give something back to the fire service as they have done so much good work over the years. My heart is truly in this and I want to help in any way I can."
